Aaron Kithcart

Aaron is a cardiology fellow at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, with clinical interests in vascular medicine, including aortopathies and thromboembolic disease. His work in the MacRae Lab is a collaboration with Dr. Peter Libby in the Center of Excellence in Vascular Biology. They are seeking to use novel approaches to study vascular disease, including the use of zebrafish and phenotype screens. Part of this work will elucidate the role of the innate immune system in atherosclerosis and thrombosis.
