Tangier disease is a rare genetic disorder of lipid metabolism. Study of this disease has provided important insight into cholesterol metabolism and a common metropolitan disease, coronary artery disease.

This article presented interviews with some of the key players: Michael R. Hayden, director and senior scientist, Centre for Molecular Medicine and Therapeutics, University of British Columbia, Canada; Stephan Rust, cholesterol metabolism group leader at the Institut für Arterioskleroseforschung an der Westfälischen Wilhelms-Universistät; and Gerd Schmitz, a physician and director of the Institut for Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine, University Hospital, Regensburg.
