|LRP1: A Huge Protein with a Huge Role in Metabolic Disease Modulation: avid Hui, Ph.D.|
|David Hui, Ph.D., Professor, Vice-Chair of Research Pathology and Laboratory
Medicine, UC College of Medicine, will be presenting the Cancer Biology
Seminar on Thursday, March 27, 2014. This seminar will take place at 12:00
Noon in the Rieveschl Auditorium of the Vontz Center for Molecular Studies.
Dr. Hui investigates two areas related to lipid metabolism and diet-induced
metabolic diseases. The first focuses on the role of pancreatic lipolytic
enzymes in dietary lipid absorption, metabolism, and impact on metabolic
diseases including obesity. The second studies the effects of apoE and its
interaction with LDL receptor related proteins (LRP) in lipid transport, cell
signaling, and modulation of metabolic diseases. Dr. Hui's seminar title is
"LRP1: A Huge Protein with a Huge Role in Metabolic Disease Modulation".
