Research

Jared uses translational approaches to understand how genetic variation in humans impacts common cardiometabolic disease. He is currently focusing on questions related to how the extracellular matrix protein, SVEP1, influences vascular diseases using cell and animal models, as well as population-level data. Coding variation in SVEP1, as well as plasma protein concentrations its protein product, are associated with numerous human diseases, such as coronary artery disease, hypertension, diabetes, dementia, and glaucoma, however we do not understand the mechanistic basis of this association. Jared is testing hypotheses regarding molecular and cellular interactions with SVEP1 that may be relevant to disease and therapeutically tractable.
