Vascular Biology

Several basic research labs in the Division of Cardiology study the processes that contribute to vascular disease.

Molecular and Genomic Vascular Receptor Biology
Developing a preventive gene therapy for cardiovascular disease and exploring other aspects of vascular signaling

Atherosclerosis and Vascular Receptor Biology
Investigating signal transduction that contributes to atherosclerosis, restenosis of angioplastied vessels, and vein graft neointimal hyperplasia

Frederick R. Cobb Non-Invasive Vascular Research Laboratory
Investigating vascular health and the atherosclerotic process by combining physiological and biochemical techniques in an attempt to better detect markers of vessel disease development.

Immunobiology of Vascular and Pulmonary Disease
Identifying and characterizing the cells that regulate immune-mediated diseases

Nitric Oxide Related Research
Elucidating NO-dependent signaling pathways in the cardiovascular system subject to redox control

Progenitor Cell Therapeutics for Atherosclerotic Disease
Understanding the roles of progenitor cells in maintaining vascular integrity and exploring the possible uses of progenitor cells as therapeutics
