Dr. Zhou’s vascular research laboratory focuses on molecular mechanisms of and treatment strategies for intimal hyperplasia. Her specific clinical research interests are re-stenosis following endovascular interventions and outcome measures following carotid interventions. Through collaboration with Stanford investigators and investigators at Baylor College of Medicine, plaque morphology and radiographic imaging are correlated. Furthermore, innovational treatment approaches for cardiovascular diseases are investigated using a well-developed wire-injury rodent model.
