Role of autophagy in normal and atherosclerotic arteries
Autophagy is a reparative, life-sustaining process that has been associated with a plethora of different pathological conditions. Although some histological studies have demonstrated that autophagy occurs in advanced atherosclerotic plaques, the role of autophagy in atherogenesis, plaque stability and vasomotor function is largely unknown. In the present research proposal, we aim to perform a detailed investigation of the role of autophagy in atherosclerosis and in normal vascular function.
