Research interests

The Vascular Biology Section is a basic science research unit. It undertakes a wide range of research in the field of cardiovascular diseases with the broad objective of improving the understanding of molecular mechanisms in the pathogenesis and the treatment of cardiovascular disease. The overarching aim of our study is to elucidate the molecular mechanisms underlying cardiovascular diseases, especially atherosclerosis. Our task is to bridge the gap between basic science research and its application through cardiology and cardiac surgery. In keeping with this, several research projects are carried out in the Unit as follows: <br />1) Stem/progenitor cells in atherosclerosis <br />2) Proteomics<br />3) Mechanical stress-initiated signalling.

Research interests (short)

Stem cells; pathogenesis of atherosclerosis; vascular biology; animal models; proteomics; gene expression.
