Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm: The Search For Therapies

January 25, 2022 | 7:00pm - 8:00pm

Free and open to the community

Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) disease is a common and frequently fatal heart disease. Currently there is no medical therapy, leaving only surgical approaches once the disease has become severely advanced. This talk will discuss some of the approaches our lab is taking to address AAA.

Joshua Spin, MD, PhD, is a Clinical Assistant Professor of Cardiology at Stanford University, and a Staff Cardiologist at the Palo Alto VA. In addition to his clinical work at Stanford Hospital and the VA, he is a member of the Stanford Center for Inherited Cardiovascular Disease and the Stanford Cardiovascular Institute, and is also an attending physician in the Stanford Marfan Center. Dr. Spin's laboratory conducts basic and translational research in vascular biology, with an emphasis on investigations of abdominal aortic aneurysm and vascular smooth muscle cells.
