Scientific Focus

Current Research and Scholarly Interests

Coronary artery disease is the leading cause of death in men and women in the United States. Our group is interested in studying both the early and late phases of atherosclerosis so that we can better develop prevention and treatment strategies. Our current studies include:

1) non-invasive methods of assessing vascular endothelial function so that we can better stratefy high risk coronary artery disease patients.

2) structural and functional studies of atherosclerosis in transplant coronary artery disease patients in order to define the the relationship between the two.

3) intravascular ultrasound studies to define the time-course in the devlopment of transplant coronary disease.

4) development of novel techniques to devliver drug imbedded particles into the atherosclerotic wall.

5) study the restenosis process in a vivo pig model.
