Faculty Labs

Bender Lab

My laboratory has had a longstanding interest in inflammation and immunity, as they relate to vascular physiology and pathology.

Chun Lab

We are interested in studying novel endothelial and vascular smooth muscle cell signaling pathways that are either disrupted or activated in the context of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), a rare disease with high mortality (up to 45% at three years after diagnosis).

Eichmann Lab

My laboratory studies vascular and lymphatic development, with particular emphasis on mechanisms that direct patterning and guidance.

Goldstein Lab

The overall theme of Dr. Goldstein’s laboratory is how inflammation impacts different disease states.

Greif Lab

My laboratory investigates blood vessel morphogenesis, the maintenance of the adult blood vessel and diseases of the vasculature.

Hirschi Lab

A primary interest of our laboratory is to understand, at the cellular and molecular level, the events leading to blood vessel formation.

Hwa Lab

The goals of the Hwa laboratory are to decipher the roles played by the prostacyclin and thromboxane receptors (both G-protein coupled receptors) in the development of atherothrombosis.

Jin Lab

My laboratory is interested in understanding molecular and cellular mechanisms that regulate developmental and pathological angiogenesis, using zebrafish as a model system.

Mani Lab

My laboratory’s major focus is the identification of genetic causes of major cardiovascular disorders and the elucidation of their pathophysiology.

Martin Lab

Our studies in the Martin Lab are aimed at understanding the molecular mechanisms that regulate vascular smooth muscle cell (VSMC) phenotype.

Qyang Lab

My laboratory seeks to understand the basic biology of a novel population of cardiovascular progenitor cells (CPC) derived from heart tissues and embryonic stem (ES) and induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells.

Sadeghi Lab

The ultimate goal of research in our Cardiovascular Molecular Imaging Laboratory is to develop novel imaging approaches to detect the molecular pathobiology of the vessel wall in vivo.

Schwartz Lab

The main research topics in my laboratory are integrin signaling and mechanotransduction in vascular biology, with emphasis on topics that are relevant to human disease.

Simons Lab

The major areas of research in my lab include the regulation of arterial development and branching morphogenesis, the regulation of vascular maintenance, Syndecan-4 signaling, and endothelial signaling and metabolism.

Tirziu Lab

My laboratory is interested in bi-directional crosstalk between vascular endothelium and cardiomyocytes that regulates cardiac size and function.

Young Lab

Key areas of our research are the molecular & cellular mechanisms regulating heart (metabolism in cv disease), autocrine-paracrine pathways (modulating cardiac cell signaling and function), and metabolic signaling pathways in atrial fibrillation.
