Intermittent hypoxia and hypertension: Role of the lamina terminalis

Project Details


Sleep apnea (SA) affects 15-25% of the US population and is associated with increased risk for cardiovascular disease. Most patients are diagnosed with SA after it is well established. This animal model provides us with a unique opportunity to determine the mechanisms underlying the pathogenesis of this disorder with the hope of identifying new biomarkers and treatment modalities for SA and cardiovascular disease.
