    About This Project

    Overweight and obese individuals have greater immune responses to repeated stress than leaner individuals.

    These immune responses can be dangerous since they increase risk of things like atherosclerosis, heart disease and stroke.

    I want to figure out why overweight people have these dangerous responses so we can figure out how to help them lead healthier lives.
    Blast off!
