Requisition Number: PD14-1639454
Diabetes is the world's fastest-growing disease with high morbidity and mortality rates, predominantly as a result of heart disease. Our recent work identified a set of microRNAs that are differentially altered in human and rat diabetic failing hearts; whether such dysregulation of microRNAs expression in the heart in response to diabetes contributes to the pathogenesis of the disease is currently unknown. Therefore, elucidating the role of microRNAs in the pathophysiological mechanisms underlying diabetic cardiomyopathy will help us devise new therapies aimed at stemming the tide of the epidemic of insulin resistance and its metabolic and cardiac complications.
