The Hsueh lab has strong translational efforts in immunometabolism as it relates to adipose tissue changes with high fat diet and effects on inflammatory driven complications such as atherosclerosis, fatty liver disease and cardiac and renal function.
Our goal is to develop unique methodology to prevent pro-inflammatory immune cell changes such as a vaccine or specific anti-inflammatory agents. In addition, Dr. Hsueh is working with the Mexican American community in Texas to preserve islet cell function to prevent diabetes.
