Immunometabolism (2020)

Just like us, immune cells need fuel to do their jobs. Despite the tight links between human health — including our immunity — and how our bodies process what we eat, the intersection of immunology and metabolism remains a poorly understood area of human biology. Allen Distinguished Investigators working in the emerging field of immunometabolism are exploring new avenues of basic biology, health, disease, and technology development, all focused on unanswered questions about how the immune system and metabolism work together.
