Ali Abdul-Sater is an Associate Professor and York Research Chair in the Faculty of Health at York University in Toronto. Dr. Abdul-Sater’s research program is focused on understanding how inflammation is regulated at the molecular level. Specifically, his group is exploring how exercise affects macrophage metabolism to alter their responses to inflammatory stimuli.

Moreover, they investigate the role of TRAF1 in regulating inflammation and on exploring ways to target this protein to devise new therapies for autoimmune diseases, especially rheumatoid arthritis. Dr. Abdul-Sater has been recognized with several prestigious awards including the ”Stars Career Development Award” from the Arthritis Society, a ”Research Chair in the Regulatory Mechanisms of Inflammation” from York University, the ”Bhagirath Singh Early Career Award in Infection and Immunity” from CIHR and a Discovery Award from the Banting Foundation.
