Our research focuses on the intracellular protein quality control pathway macroautophagy in primary arterial endothelial cells from patients with and without cardiovascular disease. Cells are collected from the sheath that is otherwise discarded during an arterial catheterization procedure. Endothelial cells then are identified via immunofluorescent staining, followed by treatment with pharmacological agents that allow the process of autophagy to be evaluated.
