Modifying Molecules' Relationship to Treat Pulmonary Hypertension
The blood vessel muscle molecule [SOCE] is important in the development of pulmonary hypertension [high blood pressure in the lungs]. Dr. Lin and team will test the relationship between SOCE and another molecule [RyR] using current techniques of physiology in animals with the goal of modifying this system with drugs used for heart disease, looking for ways to undo the pulmonary hypertension.
