Dr. G M Anantharamaiah is a Professor in the Department of Medicine. He joined the UAB faculty in 1982. His research involves use of apoA-I mimetic and apoE mimetic peptides, both these peptides to inhibit atherosclerosis in atherosclerosis sensitive mice, mechanisms of action of anti-atherogenic and anti-inflammatory peptides in relation to anti-inflammatory proteins present in HDL. In addition, apoE mimetic peptides enhance secretion of apoE and thus exert its additional beneficial effects not only in atherosclerosis but also in Alzhemierís disease and in diabetes. He has published more than 200 papers on his research.rnrn.
