Baldan lab discovery could improve treatment for heart disease

Angel Baldan, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Biochemistry, was featured in Newslink in October for his recent research on cholesterol and the microRNA, miR-33, which may control HDL levels in the blood. These important findings could lead to better drugs to control cholesterol levels and help reduce the incidence of atherosclerosis.

Dr. Baldan’s research was recently published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
