Poster #24: Heba Sultan – The influence of time-restricted feeding on arterial function in obese mice

Faculty mentor: John Dave Symons

Endothelial dysfunction resulting from systemic inflammation and / or metabolic disruption precipitates many ages and obesity-associated vascular complications. Time-restricted feeding (TRF) prevents metabolic diseases in mice fed an obesogenic diet, but its effect on endothelial function is unknown. Here we tested the hypothesis that TRF attenuates age and obesity-induced dysfunction of mesenteric and cerebral arteries.
