Cellular Metabolism of Immune Cells

Alexandra Mandarano

At the NIH Accelerating Research on ME/CFS meeting, Alexandra Mandarano, a Ph.D. candidate in Dr. Hanson’s lab, presented “Cellular Metabolism of Immune Cells”. The talk outlines a study that was performed in collaboration with Simmaron Research and focused on immunometabolism in people with ME/CFS as well as in healthy controls. To elaborate further, Alexandra Mandarano with the help of Jessica Maya, a graduate student in Dr. Hanson’s lab, performed Seahorse bioenergetics assays along with other experiments to better understand the metabolic fitness of immune cells from this population.
