Research interests

-How do glycosphingolipids play their pathological role in obesity/type 2 diabetes

-How does pharmacological manipulation of synthesis and breakdown of glycosphingolipids impact on obesity/type 2 diabetes

-In Gaucher Disease interest regards discovery of biomarkers and the observed insulin resistance.

-Given the fact that both Gaucher disease and obesity/type 2 diabetes clearly show involvement of macrophages in their pathology a more general focus on macrophage biology exists as well.
