Advisory Board


The mission of the Aab CVRI is to discover new pathways of disease and to invent new methods to diagnose and treat cardiovascular diseases.  We focus on the following areas of research: Vascular inflammation, heart failure, cardiac ischemia, and thrombosis.  We also explore how stress affects components of the cardiovascular system, including endothelial cells, smooth muscle cells, cardiac myocytes, and platelets.  Our goal is to translate our discoveries in these areas into novel diagnostic and therapeutic approaches to treat people with cardiovascular disease.
