Dr. Marc Halushka’s R01, Fine Dissection of Atherosclerosis Microenvironment RNA Expression, has been funded! The proposed research represents the first in-depth analysis of expression in human coronary atherosclerotic plaques to uncover cell-specific gene expression differences. The McCall Lab has received a subcontract to analyze transcriptomic data from the cell types present in an atherosclerotic plaque and assess the ability of mRNA- and miRNA-seq to distinguish between cell types. We will estimate the cellular composition of ~800 GTEx coronary artery samples.
