PHAT Symposium

The second annual Preventative Health of Adipose Tissue (PHAT) Symposium will take place Friday, April 14, 2023 in DHLRI. 

This interdisciplinary regional event is open to any researchers whose work intersects with the study of adipose tissue, with the goal of bringing together new research teams and collaborations and stimulating discussions around the future of adipose tissue research across the basic, translational, and clinical spectrum. 

Please contact Dr. Stanford (Kristin.Stanford@osumc.edu) with any questions specific to PHAT and Jenifer Bennett (Jenifer.Bennett@osumc.edu) with any questions regarding event logistics and registration.

2022 TriFit Challenge

Nothing unites us like doing good together. It's never been a better time to find new ways to boost physical and emotional health. The Ross Heart Hospital Family 5K run/walk took place on Sunday, July 31 and was a great way to socially connect and get moving - all while making a great impact in our community and saving lives. The event highlighted many of the visual amenities and landmarks of the campus.

Proceeds from this year's event supported two Pre-doctoral fellowships for DHLRI members. 


Yue Pan - Simonetti Lab

"Prospective Respiration Tracking for Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging using Pilot Tone and Machine Learning"




Yaeger Michael

Michael Yaeger - Gowdy Lab

"Docosahexaenoic Acid Activates PPARγ in Alveolar Macrophages to Protect the Lungs from Ozone-Induced Injury and Increase Resolution from Injury"
