Translational Cardiovascular Research


Successful research is only seen when the knowledge gained is applied.

Endothelial function, regulation of endothelial miRNA and cardiovascular risk In this area of inquiry we are investigating how changes in endothelial function might be related to changes in gene and protein expression. Using a novel sampling technique we are able to harvest endothelial cells from different types of clinical populations. Endothelial function along with the analysis of endothelial protein expression and circulating mediators of inflammation are measured with the hopes of better how cardiovascular risk may be quantified and controlled.
