HDL Resource Center

The Translation of HDL Science Curriculum Slide Library consists of 3 (three) interactive slide lecture note modules that convey the latest evidence and research on HDL and residual risk epidemiology, HDL metabolism, and HDL functionality and subfractions. The HDL Slide Library provides slide presentation materials with state of the art, peer-reviewed content developed by International experts in lipidology and HDL research. These slides efficiently translate the core scientific principles of the HDL curriculum to clinical practice.
