The Zarins Lab

Vascular Biology, Biomechanics, Tissue Engineering, and Cardiovascular Disease

Christopher K. Zarins, MD

Welcome to the Zarins Lab. The Zarins Lab at Stanford was established in 1993 under the direction of Dr. Christopher K. Zarins, with primary collaborator of Dr. Charles A. Taylor. Prior to this lab, Dr. Zarins had a vascular lab at the University of Chicago 1976-1993, with primary collaborators of Dr. Seymour Glagov and Dr. Don Giddens. The Zarins Lab is located in the James H. Clark Center on campus of Stanford University since 2003.

The mission of this lab is to investigate vascular biology and pathology to discover new concepts for prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease. The research areas of interest include pathogenesis of aneurysms and carotid stenosis, atherosclerosis, vascular biomechanics, hemodynamics, minimal invasive therapies, stent grafting, and cardiovascular tissue engineering from human embryonic stem cells.
