Title: Molecular, Mechanical, and Material Mechanisms in Cardiovascular Disease

 

Abstract

Research in the Hutcheson Cardiovascular Matrix Remodeling Lab (CMRL) focuses on the mechanisms through which tissues are built and maintained and the pathological changes that lead to disease. Our primary focus is on cardiovascular disease–the leading global cause of death. Our research combines advanced imaging, materials science, biomechanics, and molecular biology to connect cellular processes to tissue function. By understanding the ways that cells sense and respond to each other and to changes in their environment, we can develop new ways to detect initiators of disease and find interventions that restore tissue to a normal state. Specific areas of interest in the lab include aortic valve physiology and disease, mechanisms of vascular remodeling associated with chronic kidney disease and atherosclerosis, interactions between bone and vascular tissues, and the development of low-cost screening and diagnostic techniques to improve access to cardiovascular care.        

Lunch will be provided.
