Research Summary/Interests

Our interest is to identify genetic variants that are associated with cardiovascular disease and diabetes and define their biological function. We are currently integrating strategies from multiple disciplines to determine how genetic variants alter the course of disease. These strategies incorporate population genetics, biochemistry, cell biology, and transgenic and knockout animals.
