Heart disease is a major health burden. Dyslipidaemia (abnormal levels of blood lipids- such as cholesterol) promotes the disease. We propose that one way by which lipids may do so is by rewiring the immune system, causing key cells (monocytes) to be switched ‘on’ to an inflammatory state. In this study we will be assessing whether, and how, this rewiring occurs.
