Scientific summary

My main research focuses on understanding the role of tissue resident and monocyte-derived macrophages in cholesterol metabolism given particular attention to specific cellular players, such as the scavenger receptor SCARB1, but also, specific tissue macrophage populations such as Kupffer cells. Our experimental approaches mainly involve use of mouse models to target candidate genes and cell types to evaluate their contribution in vivo in maintaining cholesterol homeostasis in the context of cardio-metabolic diseases.
