Research Summary

Research in the Ron-Harel lab aims at defining new mechanisms by which cellular metabolism regulates adaptive immunity, with the goal to discover new metabolic nodes that can be targeted to both alleviate immune deficiency (i.e aging) and attenuate exacerbated immunity (i.e. autoimmunity).
