When Morgridge investigator Jing Fan thinks about metabolism, she is focused on the complicated network of biochemical reactions. Her lab has been working on understanding metabolism in a quantitative, systematic way.
In a new study published in Nature Metabolism, the Jing Fan Lab highlights how changing metabolism can regulate the course of an immune response.
Can we fight cancer by targeting its metabolism, essentially starving tumors of the nutrients they need to survive? It’s one of the intriguing big-picture questions in the research field of Jing Fan, a new investigator in the Morgridge Institute for Research metabolism theme.
