It has become increasingly clear that immune cells can change their metabolic state in response to activation in order to meet their energy requirements, however much less is known about the metabolic condition of immune cells in disease settings. The aim of this project will be to investigate immunometabolic processes in immune cells from mice harbouring chronic inflammatory diseases. The student will be involved in immune cell purification, advanced biochemical methods and imaging flow cytometry.
