The major focus of the Hotamιslιgil lab is to study the interactions between metabolic and immune responses, which drive numerous chronic diseases. Using biochemical, genetic, and physiological approaches, we aim to identify specific abnormalities in organelle homeostasis and lipid metabolism which are involved in human metabolic and inflammatory diseases including obesity, diabetes, fatty liver disease, atherosclerosis, and asthma.
