Atherosclerosis is a chronic inflammatory condition of the arterial vasculature that is characterised by imbalanced lipid metabolism and maladaptive immune responses leading to the accumulation of lipoproteins, inflammatory cells and fibrous material in the intimal layer of the vessel wall. Over time, plaque progression may lead to rupture and subsequent thrombus formation, which is the most important cause of acute cardiovascular events such as myocardial infarction and stroke. Lauran Stöger aims to elucidate the functional contribution of macrophage subsets in the development of atherosclerosis and to investigate whether systemic immunomodulation of macrophage subsets can be used to combat atherogenesis.
