    Fitzgerald Laboratory

    The Fitzgerald Laboratory explores the molecular mechanisms that cells use to export cholesterol and phospholipid to extracellular acceptor proteins, a process termed lipid efflux. We study how this process generates HDL and how HDL can modulate the innate immune system.
