Research Focus

Since the discovery of macrophages in adipose tissue, many laboratories have focused their effort on understanding the contribution of these immune cells to metabolic diseases. Despite great progress in characterizing obesity as a state of low-grade inflammation, very little is known about the multiple phenotypes and functions of macrophages in metabolic tissues. The lack of methods to carefully investigate cell-to-cell variability in macrophage phenotype and to manipulate gene expression in a cell-specific manner has delayed answering these crucial questions. Our lab takes advantage of sophisticated methods to investigate macrophage subpopulations and their function in obesity-associated metabolic complications.


Welcome to Aouadi Lab. We are a research group focusing on immunometabolism in the context of obesity and associated metabolic diseases.

The group is part of CIM at Karolinska Institutet: Aouadi Lab at Karolinska Institutet

What I like the most about the #CovidVaccine is that I don’t need to explain to family and non-scientist friends what RNA is anymore. Pretty useful when people keep wondering what the heck you working on!

Félicitations à Karine Clément, directrice de l’équipe NutriOmics @ClementLab, qui a reçu le Jacobæus Prize 2020, de la Fondation Novo Nordisk.
