CR20152015 has been a good year for the Heit lab, with five papers accepted for publication since January, with several other papers making their way through the review system. Our fifth paper of the year, a collaborative study with the Lee lab of St. Michaels Hospital in Toronto, has just been released in Cardiovascular Research. In this study we investigate the role of a process termed ‘transcytosis’ in the transport of LDL (bad cholesterol) out of blood vesicles. This is a poorly understood, but key step, in the development of cardiovascular disease, as LDL deposition beneath blood vessel walls drives this disease.
