People with type 1 or type 2 diabetes have a greater risk of developing cardiovascular disease (myocardial infarction, stroke). The cardiovascular disease is caused primarily by atherosclerosis. Our research focuses on understanding the mechanisms of diabetes-accelerated atherosclerosis so that cardiovascular complications can be treated or prevented. We study mouse models, isolated cells and human samples.
