An in-house developed high efficient, exosome isolation tool (ExoTiC) will be utilized for exosome and inflammasome isolation from well phenotyped and already bio-banked cohorts available at Stanford University. Exosomal miRNA and inflammasomal protein expression profiles will thenĀ  be defined.

We will create a blueprint map of exosomal miRNA and inflammasomal protein expression library for both health and disease stages of diabetic cardiomyopathy.
