Biography: Kate Quinlan is a Scientia Associate Professor at the School of Biotechnology and Biomolecular Sciences, UNSW Sydney.  She received her PhD from the University of Sydney in 2006 and, following postdoctoral appointments at the Children's Hospital at Westmead and the University of Cambridge, established her research group at UNSW Sydney in 2014.  Having spent her research career studying gene regulation and metabolism, she has brought these interests together in her current program of research.  Along with a dedicated team of PhD students and honours students, Kate is exploring how adipose tissue resident immune cells, in particular eosinophils, play a role in the regulation of thermogenic beige fat.  She hypothesises that signalling between immune cells and adipocytes may be able to be manipulated to drive adipose tissue beiging and weight loss.
