Lab Head, Atherothrombosis and Vascular Biology, Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute

"Research in the Atherothrombosis & Vascular Biology laboratory at Baker IDI spans from basic research in vascular biology to clinical trials in cardiology.

"This includes studies on the cellular mechanisms of coronary artery disease, encompassing the role of platelets, coagulation and inflammation in atherosclerosis, as well as the mechanisms leading to the rupture of atherosclerotic plaques, which is the final event of atherosclerosis, precipitating myocardial infarction or stroke."
