About


Dr Ronan Lordan is an Irish researcher in Philadelphia working in the area of circadian biology, aging, metabolism, and nutrition at the FitzGerald Laboratory at the Institute for Translational Medicine and Therapeutics, Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania.

His current research interests include:
(a) Circadian biology, metabolism, and ageing.
(b) Investigating the role of exercise in aging phenotypes in Bmal1 knockout mice.
(c) Discerning the role of lipid mediators such as eicosanoids and platelet-activating factors in atherosclerosis and inflammatory diseases.
(d)
Exploring the role of diet and lifestyle for the prevention of cardiovascular diseases via identification of pharmacologically active dietary polar lipids.
(e)
Regulation, safety, and efficacy of functional foods and nutraceuticals.

Projects




Circadian Regulation of Metabolism and Aging


2020 - Present: This project aims to understand the role of circadian misalignment and its contribution to metabolic diseases and aging, with a focus on Bmal1.




Lipid Mediators of Inflammation


2016 - Present: Platelet-activating factor (PAF), prostaglandins, and leukotrienes play a pivotal role in inflammatory signaling. We are interested in the development of novel therapeutic agents targeting these inflammatory mediators.




COVID-19 Research and Review Consortium


2020 - 2021: COVID-19 Review Consortium at UPenn. Our aim is to distill the existing COVID-19 literature into reviews that document the most reliable research to date in the areas of pathogenesis, therapeutics, prophylactics, and diagnostics.




2018 - 2021: Heart Healthy Salmon Nutraceuticals


The aim of this project was to assess the antioxidant properties and elucidate the structures of antithrombotic polar lipids from farmed Atlantic salmon using C30RP-UHPLC-HRAM-MS/MS for the development of novel nutraceuticals.
