Project summary

We are studying the interaction of dietary macronutrients with the microbiome, gut and plasma metabolome on cardiac phenotypic expression.

We are investigating further a tryptophan derivative that is produced exclusively in the gut and seems to have important roles in inflammatory-driven diseases like atherosclerosis and insulin resistance.
