      Collapse Overview
      My research interests are understanding the biochemical properties of lipids and lipoproteins that contribute to the risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer, both from a molecular and genetic perspective. Cancer and cardiovascular disease have many common underlying etiologies and the metabolic pathways that are disrupted in each pathology is intertwined with the other. A key feature of both cancer and cardiovascular disease is dysfunctional lipid metabolism. My research goals are to understand the genetic and regulatory mechanisms of lipid metabolism that become altered in the progression of these diseases, and to develop methods to detect these alterations to be used for prevention and earlier treatment interventions.
