Research Start Date

This project seeks to find novel molecular parameters of disease in Kawasaki disease. We will collaborate with UTSA and UTHSCSA for help with proteomic analysis and mouse echocardiograms. Using proteomics, we will correlate histologic disease and cardiac function with protein signatures of disease. This is a 1 year project.
