We have identified a novel protein in the aging heart, fibulin3. 

Our laboratory studies indicate it has a complex role in maintaining and possibly generating supportive tissue and scar tissue in the heart. This project will use the latest state-of-the-art methods to generate a fibulin 3 gene knockout model to determone the importance of this protein as the heart ages.
