Eyal Amiel

Dr. Eyal Amiel's research on metabolic and molecular regulation of cellular immune response is an important area of investigation in the budding field of "immunometabolism."

His findings may lead to better understanding and targeted treatments for chronic illnesses, including immune deficiencies and cancer. The Amiel Laboratory team found that dendritic cells — the special cells that help activate the immune system — draw from glucose stored within the cell. This finding adds an important missing piece to the puzzle of how metabolism helps regulate responses to infection. Learn more >>
