Elizabeth Tarling, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor, Department of Medicine, Cardiology
Dr. Elizabeth Tarling is interested in mechanisms that control cellular and whole-body lipid homeostasis in health and disease. Dysregulation of cellular and/or plasma lipid levels results in many different metabolic disease, including diabetes, cardiovascular disease (CVD) and cancer. Tarling’s lab has focused on investigating the role of the ATP binding cassette transporter ABCG1 in lipid metabolism, inflammation, atherosclerosis and innate immunty. Tarling is currently studying the role of ABCG1 in pulmonary lipid homeostasis, immunity and human disease.
