Lipid signaling and inflammation: metabolomics for better diagnosis and treatment strategy
Lipid signaling is an essential biological event/process in a plethora of pathophysiological conditions. The underlying idea of this thesis is that many of the roles and the complex interplay of the individual signaling lipids in inflammatory processes and related conditions in health and disease is not well known, and therefore has to be studied integrally as a complex network.

In order to study this complex interplay, an improved broad analytical method is necessary to analyze a wide range of different signaling lipid classes such as oxylipins, (nitro) free fatty acids, endocannabinoids, bile acids and different subclasses of lysophospholipids. Therefore, the aim of this thesis is to develop a better method to study signaling lipids, and to apply it to study the role of these molecules in several relevant biological questions for a better understanding of inflammation related pathophysiology including autoimmune diseases, neurodegeneration and regulatory effect of exercise training.
