- Research Description
My research focuses on the metabolism of lipids. More spefifically, I work at cellular and molecular scales to undertand the regulation of cell membrane phospholipids, fatty acids, and methyl-group donors.
- Research Summary
My background is in molecular and cell biology of lipid metabolism. Currently, my students and I work on the regulation of membrane phospholipids, fatty acids, and methyl-group donors. More speficially, we look at regulation of genes involved in choline transport and phospholipid metabolism; nutrient transporters and kinetics of membrane transport; molecular and cell biology of lipids; the effect of nutrients on protein synthesis and gene expression; and, nutritional genomics (nutrigenomics) of risk factors for cardiovascular disease and insulin resistance.
