Section of Atherosclerosis and Vascular Medicine


About the Section


The Section of Atherosclerosis and Vascular Medicine, within the Section of Cardiovascular Research, is committed to reducing pain, suffering, and death from cardiovascular disease through coordinated research, patient care, and education activities.

Strategies include developing in vitro and animal models that emulate key aspects of human metabolism, using these models to test hypotheses about molecular mechanisms for lipid disorders, obesity, diabetes, and atherosclerosis, and, ultimately, translating these insights into improvements in diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of vascular disease in humans by:
