The focus of our research program is on lipoprotein metabolism and atherosclerosis. Our major emphasis is on the role of the immune system and on the structure and function of the major apoproteins in HDL , apoA-I (243 amino acids) and apoE (299 amino acids). Both sets of studies are performed in mouse models.
