  Disease Interests



Diseases of nonhuman primates

Animal models of obesity and metabolic syndrome



  Research Specialty



Animal models of human disease 


  Clinical Research Description



My collaborative research efforts have focused on the investigation of the relationships between risk factors (e.g., stress, obesity, fat distribution pattern, lipid/lipoprotein profiles) and the development of atherosclerosis in nonhuman primate models. 



  Clinical Interests



   Laboratory animal medicine, particularly diseases of nonhuman  primates


   Metabolic syndrome
