critical references1
Critical References
  • Please specify up to five references which represent the candidates most significant contributions. If the candidate if not first author, specify the role played by the candidate in the work described by these key publications.
  • “I have chosen the 5 most important and impactful papers out of 14 papers on which I am the senior corresponding author. These papers demonstrate the focus of my research program on mechanisms by which lipids induce macrophage inflammation. These inflammatory macrophages promote atherosclerotic lesion expansion when they are present in the arterial intima and insulin resistance when they are present in adipose tissue.”

Names of all authors as listed sequentially on the publication:

Title:  

Role of Candidate: I am the senior, corresponding author on this manuscript. The experiments were performed by Saraswathi Viswanathan, a post-doctoral fellow in my laboratory at that time. I was responsible for interpretation of the data. The manuscript was drafted by Dr. Viswanathan, and finalized and submitted by myself.

slide12

This manuscript describes our observation that very low density lipoproteins (VLDL) induce inflammatory cytokine production in macrophages. In particular, we studied the time course and dose response expression of the chemokine, macrophage inflammatory protein-1α (MIP-1α). Furthermore, we showed that the increase in inflammatory gene expression coincided with the phosphorylation of the MAPK pathway members: ERK1/2, JNK, and p38 MAPK, and was ameliorated by U0126, an inhibitor of ERK1/2. Finally, inhibition of extracellular TG hydrolysis with Orlistat resulted in the absence of intracellular TG and FFA accumulation and was accompanied by the amelioration of ERK1/2 phosphorylation and MIP-1α gene expression. These results are important because hypertriglyceridemia is a hallmark characteristic of obesity-related dyslipidemia, and macrophages play a critical role in both atherosclerotic lesion formation and insulin resistance. Thus, we concluded that elevations in TG-rich VLDL may contribute to the pathogenesis of obesity by increasing inflammation in macrophages. These studies helped lay the foundation for both my American Diabetes Association grant to study MIP-1α in atherosclerosis and insulin resistance, as well as my NIH R01 to study the role of fatty acids in macrophage accumulation in adipose tissue.

slide13

These data have important implications to the pathogenesis of diet-induced obesity in humans, even when plasma lipid abnormalities are not present. This publication was also instrumental in helping me obtain my R01. In addition, they brought me recognition in the field of macrophage infiltration into AT, and I was subsequently asked to write two review articles on the topic.

slide14

Development of this mouse model has led to a collaborative effort between my laboratory and Drs. Judy Aschner, Jeff Reese, and BC Paria to study the impact of maternal obesity on the cardiovascular outcomes in the offspring. We have obtained P&F funding for this project and are currently obtaining preliminary data in order to submit a multi-PI NIH R01 application next year. In addition, Dr. Coenen and I will be writing a review article on mouse models of the metabolic syndrome to be submitted to the journal Disease Models and Mechanisms this Fall.

slide15

This publication has lead to the development of 4 new collaborations for my lab. (1) We are collaborating with Dr. Charles Wilkins at the University of Arkansas to assess phospholipid levels in tissues from these mice, and have a manuscript in submission. (2) We are collaborating with Dr. Alan Tall at Columbia University to determine the effect of fish oil on the phagocytic index of arterial macrophages. (3) We are collaborating with Dr. Edward Fisher at New York University to determine whether fish oil impacts apoB aggregation in liver. (4) We are collaborating with Dr. Naima Moustaid-Moussa at the University of Tennessee Knoxville to determine whether fish oil impacts adipose tissue expression of genes involved in the renin angiotensin system.

list of potential external reviewers
List of Potential External Reviewers
  • “Nationally recognized leaders in relevant area of scholarship”
  • Colleagues but NOT collaborators
    • Someone in the same research group as a collaborator
    • Someone who has followed your career and has an interest in seeing you succeed
    • Head of similar department as yours
    • Could they say, “this person would certainly be given T&P at my University” – be aware of other University T&P policies.
    • “The most frequent reason for deferral of Committee action is the need to request additional information from additional correspondents.”
