What We Study

Atherosclerosis is a disease characterized by elevated circulating lipid levels, as well as contributions of the immune system. Our laboratory explores the influence of dysregulated lipid metabolism, as occurs during atherosclerosis, on pathologic immune cell formation and function. Projects will focus on the identification regulators/pathways that become dysregulated during disease progression and therapeutic strategies to mediate the pathologic contributions of immune cells in cardiovascular disease, inflammatory disorders and cancer.

We use high resolution microscopy and flow cytometry combined with reporter mouse models to decipher changes in immune cells and their microenvironment between health and disease. Our goal is to identify pharmacologically relevant avenues of intervention to slow or even reverse disease.
