1. Evaluate the role of HDL-C in reducing cardiovascular events and rates of atherosclerotic disease progression;
2. Describe the mechanisms involved in the production, metabolism, and functionality of HDL including how they relate to atherogenesis;
3. Identify the genetic causes of low and high serum HDL-C as well as the clinical and research implications of these genetic disorders;
4. Explain current research defining the mechanisms underlying cholesteryl ester transfer protein (CETP) inhibition and its impact on HDL metabolism;
5. Review the role of HDL subfractions and apolipoproteins as risk factors
