Diseases of the vascular system are very common and remain important areas for improvement of
clinical treatments. We are interested in how the blood vessel wall responds to injury and how we
can modify the cells in the blood vessel wall to improve this response. We are interested in using
genetic medicines. To achieve this we need to understand how certain molecules, called RNA
influence the function of cells in the vessel wall. This is the aim of the current project
