 A. Jake Lusis Recipient of the 2009 Earl P. Benditt Award
A. Jake Lusis, Ph.D.
Professor of Medicine, Microbiology, and Molecular Genetics
University of California, Los Angeles
 
Dr. Lusis studies artherosclerosis, the primary cause of heart disease and stroke, has an important genetic component, but the genes contributing to the common forms of the disease are largely unknown. Studies in humans have been hampered by the etiologic complexity of atherosclerosis. One approach to the problem involves studies in mouse models, which are more amenable to genetic dissection of complex traits. The genes and pathways identified in mice can them be tested in human populations.  More . . .

The Rutgers Center for Lipid Research
Driving through Rutgers University’s School of Environmental and Biological Sciences (SEBS) (formerly known as Cook College), one might get a sense of being in a different time or place. Just a few miles north and south the strip malls, diners, and jug-handle turns that make New Jersey notorious are in full bloom; but here on this campus that hosts the agricultural, environmental, and food and nutritional science programs, the hustle of suburban life is replaced with rolling pastures, grazing livestock, and a sprawling botanical garden.  More . . .
