Research Summary

Dr. Frank Giordano has been studying myocardial angiogenesis, evaluating the consequences of deletion or over-expression of pro-angiogenic genes in animal models. He has been working on the development of new viral vectors for gene delivery, in ongoing assessments of cardiovascular gene therapy. Dr. Giordano is leading the efforts to develop a viral vector core at Yale. Dr. Kerry Russell studies signaling pathways induced by growth factors of the neuregulin family, and their erbB receptors, and the effect of activation on vascular form and function.
