    Collapse Overview
    Lipids (particularly cholesterol and phospholipids) are essential components of cell membranes and are precursors to many signaling molecules, including steroid hormones, bile acids, second messengers, and oxysterols. As such, lipid synthesis pathways are among the most intensely regulated processes in biology. We are interested in understanding molecular mechanisms that control cellular, tissue and whole-body lipid homeostasis in healthy and disease states.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication.
