Emory University Research Fellow/Trainee- Cardiology in Atlanta, Georgia
The Lyle Lab studies peripheral artery disease (PAD) and is focused on the intersection of diabetes and PAD and why PAD patients with diabetes are 5-10 times more likely to need a major limb amputation. We are currently identifying physiologic factors that promote new vessel formation and vessel remodeling to increase blood flow and restore ischemic limb function, thus preventing the need for amputation. We are seeking qualified applicants to work on a project investigating the roles of 3 protein isoforms in the collateral blood vessel formation process using in vivo and ex vivo systems.
