Hwang Lab Research Studies

·         Investigate how fatty acids, glucose and phytochemicals modulate the activation of pattern recognition receptors (PRRs), their signaling pathways, and associated inflammatory responses.


·         Evaluate the role of Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) on insulin resistance using a murine model.


·         Modulation of inflammasome mediated immune responses by dietary fatty acids.


·         Elucidating the role of excess fatty acid metabolites associated with obesity and T2DM on the modulation of PRR mediated inflammatory responses.
