How does Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL) promote aortic valve stenosis at the cellular level?

Started Jan. 24, 2022

Abstract or project description

My student (Aarav) is discussing the role of LDL cholesterol in the pathogenesis of aortic valve stenosis at the cellular level. He is focusing on the role of reactive oxygen species and the oxidative stress they may cause on this pathway. The final objective is to elucidate this pathway in order to provide targets for preventative or therapeutic care. He has gone through multiple databases of scientific papers and has gathered over 40 papers to use for his literature review. We've worked together to consolidate his sources using Zotero since reference management will be very important for his paper.
