Autophagy in inflammation, infection, and immunometabolism

A brand new 2021 review on autophagy and immunity by Dr. Deretic. According to the author, this took a whole year to write. It's a summary of what we collectively know about autophagy and immunity with emphasis on metabolic connections and disease, honoring contributions of all those who so elegantly and stridently contributed to the field.

Expression of Interest

At this time, we are accepting an Expression of Interest (EOI) by prospective candidates. The Autophagy Inflammation and Metabolism Center (AIM) is planning to conduct periodic searches for competitive mentored PI (mPI) positions to be supported by the AIM P20 NIH award.

Metformin improves CD4+ T cell autophagy and mitochondrial respiration, ameliorating a newly defined inflammaging profile that echoes inflammation in diabetes. Metformin-sensitive defects in immune cell autophagy accompany natural aging in people, shift mitochondrial bioenergetics, and fuel a...
