I trained as biochemist and cellular biologist before starting to approach immunological questions, motivated by a ‘renaissance’ in the interest in metabolism in widespread fields of the basic and clinical science. I will take you through the journey of how I got to my professorship, from the early life in a remote village in southern Italy to the career steps I took. I will also tell you a little about the journey of my group into immunometabolism, i.e. the interconnections between metabolic and inflammatory pathways and how systemic and local metabolic alterations in diseases with an inflammatory component (e.g. autoimmune and cardiovascular) lead to aberrant immune cell responses, which favour both the establishment and the propagation of inflammation.
