Structure Function Relationships in the Human Aorta and Murine Aneurysms
  • Structure Function Relationships of the Aorta

The STBL has devoted significant effort into understanding the remodeling of the aorta in the context of complex aortic disease. Our work has spanned from large human aortic mechanical and microstructural characterization (see Haskett DG et al., 2010) to the ECM remodeling in murine models of Marfan (see Haskett DG et al., 2012) and abdominal aortic aneurysm (see Haskett DG et al., 2012, 2013 and 2016).
