DOCE Associate Director Karin Bornfeldt, PhD is senior author of an article published in the April issue of Cell Reports (Cell Press). This article, entitled “Testing the Role of Myeloid Cell Glucose Flux in Inflammation and Atherosclerosis”, demonstrates that increased glucose flux in macrophages and other myeloid cells does not contribute to inflammation and atherosclerosis in vivo. These findings have important implications for studies on diabetic vascular disease; a multifactorial disease in which the role of glucose is still uncertain. The article was also featured in the April 10th issue of Cell Reports: “Getting to the cardiovascular heart of diabetes: Q&A with Karin Bornfeldt”. DOCE researcher Jenny Kanter, PhD, is co-author on the article.
