Room 632 is home to a bunch of wonderful female scientists from all corners of the globe.
Lydia was the recipient of the 2020 Department of Medicine Early Career Mentoring Award. Thanks for all your support Lydia!
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 is to investigate how the type of dietary fat we eat differentially shapes the metabolism and function of Natural Killer cells.
Roisin would like to thank the Irish Cancer Society for funding this important research and all the volunteers and supporters for their contributions to help raise awareness about obesity-associated cancers.
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!

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!

Congratulations to Dr. Ayano Kohlgruber PhD!
Lydia met with President Michael D. Higgins at the SFI President of Ireland Future Research Leader Awards!
