Over 25% of Canadians live with pre-T2DM or T2DM (> 11 million patients) and this expanding population is at ever greater risk for heart disease causing a significant strain on health care resources (costs >16 billion/year in Ontario alone). With her expertise in lipids and lipoproteins, models of diabetes and cardiovascular disease, intestinal biology and mouse genetics, Dr. Mulvihill’s laboratory aspires to contribute improve our understanding of the molecular events which contribute to metabolic and cardiovascular disease.
