My laboratory is engaged in translational research focused on investigating genetic and pharmacogenetic associations with cardiovascular disease, with a particular interest in diabetic cardiovascular disease. Ongoing projects in my laboratory include 1) comprehensively investigating the genetic and pharmacogenetic associations of PPAR-pathway variants, using a custom PPAR-pathway targeted-genotyping 3K array, in a population with type 2 DM and coronary artery disease that has been extensively phenotyped (BARI 2D cohort); 2) assessing the predictive impact of genetic variants in the context of modern post-ACS therapy in a cohort of 4,500 patients with acute myocardial infarction (TRIUMPH cohort).
