Anthony Koleske, Ph.D., associate professor of molecular biophysics and biochemistry and neurobiology, has been awarded the $500,000 Established Investigator Award from the American Heart Association. The award supports midterm investigators with unusual promise, a record of accomplishments and a demonstrated commitment to cardiovascular or cerebrovascular science. The award will help fund Koleske’s research into how cells sense differences in their arterial environment and respond by redirecting their migration. Understanding these cues may lead to treatments to block the formation of atherosclerotic plaque.
