Research Focuse

My research focuses on oxidative stress and inflammation caused by macrophages in response to metabolic and environmental stressors. I have developed methods to detect and prevent oxidative damage, discovering that the nitrones spin trap DMPO can be a therapeutic agent. My work highlights the role of hypoxic inflammation in tumor biology and obesity-related inflammation, exploring how monocyte infiltration and macrophage switching are influenced by these conditions. Current projects investigate the mechanisms linking lung inflammation and insulin resistance in obesity, testing natural and synthetic inhibitors of myeloperoxidase and activators of NF-kB and Nrf-2 to reduce inflammation and promote adipogenesis.
