Through pinpointing the genetic basis of cardiovascular disease our work will offer clearer diagnosis and management of this disease.
To allow for the clearer diagnosis and management of cardiovascular disease.
Our primary interest is in exploring the causes of inherited thoracic aortic aneurysm disease, metabolic syndrome and myxomatous cardiac valve disease in cardiovascular disease.
