Finn's laboratory combines basic research and clinical investigation, focusing on translational research in the area of atherosclerotic coronary artery disease, including mechanisms of disease, treatment, and exposing potential treatment complications. Currently, his research focuses on three major areas: 1) the effect of drug eluting stents on re-endothelialization of stent surfaces, particularly molecular mechanisms of vascular healing after injury; 2) the role of angiogenesis and intraplaque hemorrhage in coronary plaque progression and inflammation; and 3) the pathophysiology of coronary lesion progression in type 2 diabetics. The Finn lab makes use of both animal models and clinical trials to provide insights into mechanisms of disease and treatment which can be translated directly into the care of patients.
