Welcome to Cardiovascular Molecular Imaging Laboratory
The ultimate goal of research in our laboratory is to develop novel in vivo imaging approaches to visualize, characterize and quantify molecular and cellular processes involved in the development of cardiovascular diseases. This is a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary effort, involving the researchers with expertise in vascular and molecular biology, molecular imaging, medical physics and chemistry. Our primary focus is on vascular remodeling and inflammation; key features of atherosclerosis, graft arteriosclerosis, post-angioplasty restenosis, aneurysm and calcific aortic valve disease.
The Cardiovascular Molecular Imaging Laboratory is seeking a new member with expertise in imaging to develop novel imaging techniques for cardiovascular inflammation, remodeling and fibrosis, and participate in first in human studies of matrix metalloproteinase-targeted tracers.
