Research Summary

The Irani laboratory broadly studies the molecular basis for vascular function and dysfunction in health and disease. Currently, the focus of the laboraotry is on understanding the roles of the redox proteins Ref-1/APE1 and p66shc, and the lysine deacetylase in governing endothelium-dependent vascular function. There is also a growing interest in exploring the role of micro-RNAs in vascular homeostasis, and deciphering the mekchanisms through which the gut microbiome impacts on vascular function.
