 Espinosa-Diez Lab


We are a non-coding-RNA lab interested in understanding how cancer therapies shape the epigenetic landscape of vascular cells, potentially giving rise to long-term vascular complications. The lab's main goals are :

  1. To explore the response of long-non-coding RNAs to different anti-cancer agents.
  2. To investigate these long-non-coding RNAs' role in vascular remodeling during disease progression.
