We have a translational/wet lab where we perform cell-based cholesterol efflux assays, FPLC profiling, ELISA, Western, and other protein and lipid quantifications. We have three full-time research staff conducting these assay. Projects would be translational, conducting assays on blood from human cohorts and may include assessing response to interventions or phenotyping at-risk groups like people with diabetes or renal disease, South Asians, etc. These would be ideal for postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, and medical students. These could be supported by and lead to grants.
