    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.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
