Vascular Studies

Vascular dysfunction  often precedes development of vascular disease, and ultimately precipitates hypertension, atherosclerosis and their complications. ECCRI researchers are using a translational approach to characterize the molecular pathways that modulate vascular health to determine the combined effects of genetics, race, environmental, and psycho-social risk factors on the vasculature.

GPAD-3 Study

ECCRI is currently recruiting subjects with documented peripheral arterial disease (PAD) for a clinical trial to determine if granulocyte-macrophage colony stimulating factor (GM-CSF) improves symptoms and blood flow in people with PAD. To learn more or to refer a patient call 470-421-4253 or email
