Epigenetic mechanisms underlying metabolic-inflammatory diseases - Eckardt Treuter

The research of Eckardt Treuter's group attempts to better understand how the epigenome controls metabolic and inflammatory pathways in the context of obesity, type 2 diabetes, fatty liver disease and atherosclerosis. Epigenetic alterations that trigger changes in epigenome activity and gene expression are fundamental reprogramming events that contribute to the development of these diseases.
