What Makes Us Beat

Our group's goal is to know the cellular composition of the heart during disease and across lifespan. We will apply such information to elucidating the causes and consequences of cardiac health and disease. In all such endeavors, the laboratory invokes a multidisciplinary approach to answer important questions in a variety of in vivo and in vitro models. Our group is also dedicated to providing a fertile environment for trainees to gain the necessary experience and guidance to become independent investigators.
