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 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.
