"Not just fat" Exploring Octadecanoids as Novel Bioactive Lipids in Inflammation
Craig E. Wheelock, Ph.D.
Associate Professor in the Department of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics at the Karolinska Institute, Sweden
Craig serves as director of the Integrative Molecular Phenotyping Laboratory at the Karolinski Institute. He is also a Distinguished Visiting Professor at Gunma University, Japan, where he leads the Karolinska International Open Laboratory in metabolomics. Following post-doctoral work on lipid mediators at the University of California Davis, he conducted additional post-doctoral studies at the KEGG laboratory in Kyoto University, Japan. In 2006, he was awarded a Marie Curie Fellowship to relocate to the Karolinska Institute, where he founded the Integrative Molecular Phenotyping Laboratory. His research uses mass spectrometry to investigate the role of small molecules in disease etiology using metabolomics and lipidomics. A particular area of interest in the group is investigating the role of bioactive lipids including octadecanoids, eicosanoids and other lipid mediators of inflammation.
