"A Metabolic-Immune Interface"

Research

Dr. Ferrante runs a research laboratory that has revealed that the immune system responds to changes in weight so that in the most obese individuals more than half of the cells that make up their fat are actually immune cells. His research efforts are now focused on understanding how the immune and metabolic systems interact and how the immune system can be used to be protect people from complications associated with obesity or even obesity itself.
