Research Focus

The objective of my research is to simultaneously simplify and improve the diagnosis and treatment of the atherogenic dyslipoproteinemias with the use of apoB; to improve the effectiveness of primary prevention of cardiovascular disease by the application of the Benefit model; and to determine if injury to the pancreas due to excess uptake of LDL particles contributes to the pathogenesis of type 2 diabetes mellitus.
