Research Interests:  Dr. Snodgrass’s research is focused on understanding how diet and nutritional and metabolic status shape innate immune function. Active research areas include: 1) investigating how metabolic status influences innate immune cell frequencies and phenotypes; 2) investigating the impact of diet and stress on cardiovascular risk factors and innate immune cell phenotypes; 3) investigating how gut microbiota-derived metabolites, which can be influenced by our diet, contribute to innate immune cell function.
