Expertises

Genetic epidemiology; lipids and lipoproteins; atherosclerosis

Main research areas

Using large cohorts of the general population we are studying genetic determinants of lipid and lipoprotein levels with focus on triglyceride-rich lipoproteins and their role in development of atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease.

Current research

Genetic variation in the apolipoprotein A5 and apolipoprotien C3 genes and its association with plasma levels of triglycerides and risk of cardiovascular disease.
