Main lines of research
Markers of CV Risk project
Study of a cohort of patients with coronary intervention (scheduled or urgent) for high risk of ACS (n = 50) compared with healthy controls (n = 50).
-Distinguishing between patients with and without renal disease
-Distinguishing between patients with and without prior event (myocardial infarction, angina).
* Principal Investigator: Ángeles Heredero Jung
Project: New therapeutic and prognostic targets for cardiovascular involvement in diabetes mellitus type II
Study of the effect of the presence of type II diabetes on the human myocardium, using proteomic, metabolomic, and molecular biology techniques. This study will attempt to characterize the proteome present in the myocardium of patients with diabetes and associated metabolic changes by comparing coronary sinus plasma with peripheral venous plasma extracts.
* Principal Investigator: Gonzalo Aldámiz-Echevarría
Bicuspid aortic valve disease and aortic dilatation project
Study aimed at predicting which BAV patients will experience aortic dilatation.
* Principal Investigator: Lucie Henault
Project: mediators of vascular and valvular calcification
Identification of mediators of vascular and valvular calcification with a view to designing new therapeutic strategies for calcific aortic stenosis.
