Prof. Passerini was awarded a two year beginning grant-in-aid from the American Heart Association to study the “Influence of endothelial cell aging on susceptibility to the inflammatory mechanisms of atherogenesis.”  The goal of this project is to examine aging as a risk factor in cardiovascular disease, identifying molecular signatures of aging that may lead to functional impairment of endothelium and measuring age-associated differences in response to in vitro models of inflammatory atherogenesis.
