“Smooth Muscle Cells Play a Critical Role in Atherosclerosis

Development and Late Stage Lesion Pathogenesis”

12:00-1:00 pm*

Quayle Learning Center, Battle Building

*Free lunch served on a first-come basis starting at 11:45 a.m.

Learning Objectives:

  1. To gain an understanding of some major paradigm shifts in our understanding of the pathogenesis of late stage atherosclerosis including mechanisms by which smooth muscle cell phenotypic transitions control plaque rupture or erosion leading to a possible heart attack or stroke.
  2. To reassess possible risks associated with global suppression of inflammation.
