overview Dr. Alenghat's laboratory focuses on macrophage biology and the inflammatory component of atherosclerosis. His clinical interests and academic pursuits lie within the fields of cardiovascular physiology and pathophysiology, with a special focus on vascular biology and inflammatory pathways in atherosclerosis. He also has experience in integrin biology, mechanotransduction, and extracellular matrix biology. He seeks to discover basic mechanisms of physiology and pathophysiology that govern cardiovascular health and disease. One of the laboratory’s main projects is to elucidate how a signaling pathway that is activated downstream of integrins in macrophages governs atherogenesis and macrophage polarization. His laboratory has expertise in mouse husbandry, tissue sample preparation, immunohistochemistry, and quantitative confocal microscopy. He is highly motivated to mentor future physicians and scientists in an overarching aim to promote health by understanding and reducing cardiovascular disease.
