Congratulations to Greg Westcott on his newly awarded K08! It is titled Lymphatic-adipocyte interactions in obesity and lymphedema. The K08 will focus on specific mechanisms of the bidirectional relationship between adipocytes and lymphatic endothelial cells using metabolic and lymphatic vascular functional testing. It also includes single-nucleus RNA sequencing of adipose tissue hypertrophy associated with lymphatic diseases.
