Credentials: My lab studies non-coding genetic variants linked to increase risk of Coronary Artery Disease (CAD). We use induced pluripotent stem cells and genome editing to study how these genetic risk factors affect cells of the vascular wall. My project focuses on understanding the role of the 9p21.3 CAD locus, the strongest genetic risk factor of CAD, in vascular smooth muscle cells.
