Secrets of Lipoprotein Metabolism Revealed by Studies with Stable Isotopes
Dr. Henry N. Ginsberg is the Irving Professor of Medicine at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, Associate Dean for Clinical and Translational Research, and Director of the Irving Institute for Clinical and Translational Research at Columbia University Medical Center in New York, New York. He is the Principal Investigator of one of the first 12 NIH–funded Clinical Translational Science Awards (CTSA). In addition to the CTSA grant, Prof. Ginsberg is principal investigator on two R01 research grants from the NIH, National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute. He is also the co-principal investigator at Columbia on the ACCORD Trial. His research interests have focused on the regulation of plasma cholesterol and triglyceride blood levels, particularly the metabolism of apolipoprotein B–containing lipoproteins in cells, mice, and humans. Much of his present work focuses on the interaction between insulin resistance, increased secretion of very low-density lipoproteins by the liver, and hepatic steatosis. In this Special lecture, he tell us about “Secrets of Lipoprotein Metabolism Revealed by Studies with Stable Isotopes”.
