Current Research and Scholarly Interests My broad interested is to understand the genetics basis underlying vascular disease and the risk for these diseases. My research program focuses on methodology in statistical and quantitative genetics and application of new methods to identify genes that associate with disease and risk. Applications include dissection of genetic variation inherent to subclinical and clinical atherosclerosis using several clinical and genetic datasets available through the NCBI's database.

Joshua M. Spin
Basic Life Sci Res Assoc, Medicine - Cardiovascular Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Spin began his research career studying the structural biology of low density lipoprotein, and has been augmenting his skills with intensive training in molecular biology techniques, particularly those involving high-throughput genetic expression profiling. He is especially interested in vascular smooth muscle cells, and the role of smooth muscle differentiation and phenotypic switching in development and vascular disease. His latest work has focused on the biology of aortic aneurysms.
