Metabolomic Signatures


National Institutes of Health (NIH)

Coronary artery disease (CAD), also called coronary heart disease, is the narrowing or blockage of the coronary arteries, usually caused by atherosclerosis. It is the most common type of heart disease and is the leading cause of death in the United States. The Metabolomic Signatures of Coronary Artery Disease (CAD)-Associated Genotypes project is an international collaborative venture.

Project Overview

The overall goal of the project is to use un-targeted metabolomics to identify metabolites that are associated with CAD genotypes. This work will provide novel insights into the mechanisms and pathways involved in the pathogenesis of CAD, and help identify novel therapeutic targets to CAD.
