Welcome to my blog! My name is Amrita and I am a senior at BASIS Independent Silicon Valley. My project is titled The Effectiveness of Drug-Eluting Stents and will explore the most common complication with the insertion of heart stents in a clogged artery: in-stent restenosis. As coronary heart disease is a leading cause of death there are a number of medical treatments and advances in the field. I will be focusing on the most common treatment, drug-eluting stents, and evaluate their efficacy in preventing complications. I will be working with Dr. Michael S. Conte at the UCSF Heart and Vascular Center to learn more about the effects of restenosis and stents. I hope to create an organized, comparative analysis outlining different drugs used in drug-eluting stents in order to simplify treatment plans for patients and doctors.

Here is my Research Proposal. Please feel free to contact me or comment on blog if you have any questions!
