Research project:
 My research aims at the identification and quantification of oxidized lipid species and their corresponding protein adducts in adipose tissue of insulin resistant and insulin sensitive patients. By putting the obtained omics data in a systems medicine environment, an integrated view on obesity and obesity related complications can be provided with the final goal of identifying potential biomarkers and therapeutic targets with high diagnostic, prognostic and therapeutic potential.
