DFG grant awarded to Dr. habil. Tamás Röszer

Ulm University

Tamás Röszer was awarded with the grant of the German Research Fund (DFG), allowing his research group to conduct a study on the development and function of adipose tissue macrophages. Adipose tissue macrophages are immune cells with complex metabolic effects, with primary role in the development of insulin resistance and associated metabolic disorders. The studies of Dr. Röszer and his colleagues are now receiving support from DFG and the European Commission, and will allow better understand the endocrine control of adipose tissue macrophage differentiation and function. Theses studies can help impede insulin resistance, a today widespread, but still non curable metabolic disease.
