Role of flow in development of the embryonic heart

Apr15
Debbie Garrity, PhD Presents:

Wednesday April 15th, 2015 at 1:00 - 2:00pm in Room W205, Anatomy/Zoology Building

The embryonic heart begins pumping blood even before the cardiac organ is fully formed. Research in the Garrity lab focuses on genetic and biomechanical factors that contribute to normal heart development. To study how the newly formed heart tube transitions into a rhythmic, efficient multi-chambered organ, we employ quantitative imaging in live zebrafish embryos. The […]

Mitochondria regulate arterial L-type calcium channels

Apr08
Greg Amberg, PhD Presents:

Wednesday April 8th, 2015 at 1:00 - 2:00pm in Room W205, Anatomy/Zoology Building

Dr. Amberg received his PharmD from Idaho State University and his PhD in Cell and Molecular Pharmacology and Physiology from the University of Nevada, Reno. He has been a faculty member in the department of Biomedical Sciences at CSU since 2007. His research involves the study of ion channels in cerebral arterial smooth muscle and […]

Targeting Cathepsin K in Cardiometabolic Disease

Mar11
Sreejayan Nair, PhD Presents:

Wednesday March 11th, 2015 at 1:00 - 2:00pm in Room W205, Anatomy/Zoology Building

Cathepsins are cysteine proteases that are ubiquitously expressed in various tissues. Our studies reveal that cathepsin K, the most potent cathepsin in terms of its proteolytic functions, is upregulated in the failing human heart and in a variety of rodent models (high-fat diet, pressure-overload, aging, starvation) of heart failure. In contrast, cathepsin K knockout (Ctsk-/-) […]

Inputs to Vascular Smooth Muscle Phenotypic Diversity: Developmental and Disease Models

Feb11
John J. Reho, Ph.D. Presents:

Wednesday February 11th, 2015 at 1:00 - 2:00pm in Room W205, Anatomy/Zoology Building

Inputs to Vascular Smooth Muscle Phenotypic Diversity: Developmental and Disease Models Dr. Reho received his B.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Physiology from the University of Akron in Akron, Ohio. He is currently a postdoctoral fellow in the Cardiovascular Medicine Division at the University of Maryland, Baltimore. His current research has been focusing on the signaling […]

Elucidating the roles of polyunsaturated fatty acids in cardiac function

Feb04
Adam J. Chicco, Ph.D. Presents:

Wednesday February 4th, 2015 at 1:00-2:00pm in Room W205, Anatomy/Zoology Building

Dr. Chicco’s primary research focus is understanding the mechanisms and (patho)physiological consequences of altered polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) metabolism and membrane phospholipid composition associated with cardiometabolic diseases. His laboratory strives to conduct highly integrative and translational studies in rodent models based on clinically relevant observations in vivo, incorporating an array of physiological methods at the […]
