Laminin alpha 5 mediated smooth muscle remodelling in hypertension: functional effects, modulation by miRNA



Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster, Münster, Germany





In 2014 I finished my studies at the University of Latvia, where I obtained Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Biology. My master’s thesis project was “The impact of endocytosis inhibitors on the ability of transfection” and after graduating I wanted to expand my knowledge of molecular and cell biology. I joined Prof. Sorokin’s group, where I am investigating the role of basement membrane protein laminin alpha 5 on vascular smooth muscle cell contractility.
