Regulation of lipid metabolism and partitioning

The primary focus of my laboratory is on the regulation of triglyceride-rich lipoprotein metabolism and fatty acid partitioning. Lipoprotein lipase (LPL) is the primary enzyme responsible for hydrolyzing lipoprotein triglycerides for the delivery of fatty acids to tissues. My current research program investigates how angiopoietin-like proteins modulate LPL activity, alter fatty acid partitioning, and change metabolic phenotypes.
