Stephen Young M.D.
During the past few years, we have worked on two general areas, the pathogenesis of hypertriglyceridemia and diseases of the nuclear lamina. Our laboratory works on molecules as they relate to human disease, and we make use of diverse techniques in molecular and cellular biology. When appropriate, we make use of genetically modified mice to investigate our research questions.
