Research Summary:

Atherosclerosis is widely prevalent in humans and can lead to ischaemic heart disease and stroke, the leading worldwide causes of death. Low density lipoproteins (LDL) are central to the molecular etiology of atherosclerosis, and their clinical biochemistry is intimately tied to atherosclerotic risk. Our group is exploring how the biological pathways that regulate lipoprotein folding and assembly impact the biochemical properties of lipoprotein particles. We are particularly interested in developing in situ and high-throughput tools to:

  •  characterize lipoprotein heterogeneity
  • quantify protein homeostasis across the proteome
  • measure the contribution of physiological stress to LDL atherogenicity
