Cardiovascular research

The Hinds Lab researches the development, progression, and treatment of cardiovascular disease. We are particularly interested in the fetal development of the heart, endothelial cell regulation of the progression of cardiovascular disease, and cardiovascular devices for the treatment of diseases.
