1. Engineering Approaches to Cholesterol linked diseases
Contact Name: Steven Wrenn Organization:Drexel University

Cholesterol is both a nutrient as well as one that causes diseases. Onset of two cholesterol-linked diseases, namely atherosclerosis and gallstone are described from an engineering perspective. The cause of the diseases is the formation of insoluble cholesterol crystals. The classical theory of nucleation that determines cholesterol crystallization is presented. Future prospects of controlling these diseases through nucleation modulation are discussed briefly.
