Project: The role of endolysosomal maturation on the calcification potential of vascular smooth muscle cell-derived extracellular vesicles

PI: Claudia Goettsch

Calcifying extracellular vesicles (EVs) are the smallest unit involved in the formation of arterial microcalcification. In this project, we investigate the role of endolysosomal maturation on the release and cargo loading of calcifying EVs
