His research interests have focused on the regulation of plasma cholesterol and triglyceride blood levels, particularly the metabolism of apolipoprotein B–containing lipoproteins in cells, mice, and humans. Much of his present work focuses on the interaction between insulin resistance and increased secretion of very low-density lipoproteins by the liver. Very active in clinical research training and education, Dr. Ginsberg was also program director of a T32 Postdoctoral Training Grant in Arteriosclerosis for the past 15 years.  The CTSA includes a predoctoral T32 program in translational research, a master’s degree program in patient oriented research, and a junior faculty K12 Clinical Research Scholars Program.
