Using novel drug discovery platforms to inhibit ENPP enzymes during the calcification process

Supervisors: Scott WebsterVicky MacRaePatrick Hadoke

Project Description:

Heart disease and strokes affect about one person in three and are in part caused by arteries and valves becoming stiffened with calcium deposits (1). However, how this vascular calcification occurs is not fully known.
