Roisin is awarded the Irish Cancer Society 2019 biomedical research fellowship!

Roisin Loftus was recently awarded the Irish Cancer Society 2019 biomedical research fellowship to advance obesity-associated cancer research in Ireland. Recent research from the Lynch lab has shown that obesity blocks the normal functions of Natural Killer cells, which may contribute to the increased risk of cancer in obesity. The focus of Roisin’s ICS fellowship […]

Metabolic reprogramming of natural killer cells in obesity limits anti-tumor responses

A recent publication by the Lynch Lab on how cancer-fighting natural killer cells are inactivated during obesity has been picked up by several news outlets! Well done guys! Here are a few links below: https://www.independent.ie/irish-news/health/trinity-college-scientists-discover-new-link-between-obesity-and-cancer-37519901.html https://www.irishmirror.ie/news/irish-news/health-news/irish-scientists-trinity-college-dublin-13578617 https://www.thejournal.ie/cancer-obesity-research-trinity-college-dublin-4335526-Nov2018/ https://www.irishexaminer.com/breakingnews/views/ourview/fighting-obesity-and-cancer–kitchen-class-884929.html

NK cell cartoon

Thank you Pedromics for the cartoon based on our recent paper in ‘Nature Immunology’ – “Metabolic Reprogramming of Natural Killer cells in obesity limits anti-tumor responses. Looks great! See it here: https://lynch-lab.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/NKCartoon.pdf
