    Current Research and Scholarly Interests The goal of our research is to elucidate the molecular mechanisms by which proteins and cholesterol are transported between specific membrane compartments. We are trying to understand how phosphorylation of Rabs may trigger Parkinson's Disease. We also study how cells acquire cholesterol from the diet and from LDL; cholesterol export from lysosomes is critical for normal cell function.
