Cardiovascular Disease (CIP1)
This Center-Initiated Project is studying matched set of iPSC lines from patients with cardiovascular disease and the corresponding whole genome sequences and genome-wide expression analyses. The primary goal of this CIP is to establish a biobank of extensively well-characterized iPSC lines and to validate the utility of this resource by modeling two highly prevalent familial forms of cardiovascular disease, DCM and HCM, and performing drug screening studies. This CIP will also investigate genome stability of iPSC lines, which is crucial for understanding their therapeutic value.
