Faculty Lab Websites

  • Matthew Brody, PhD
    The Brody lab is broadly focused on the molecular signals that underlie cardiac disease onset and progression.
  • J. Brian Byrd, MD, MS
    Research in the Byrd lab focuses on improving the diagnosis and treatment of high blood pressure through the identification of novel biomarkers of mineralocorticoid receptor activation.
  • L. Michel Espinoza-Fonseca, PhD
    The goal of the Espinoza-Fonseca group is to understand the fundamental molecular motions and interactions that are responsible for regulating calcium transport in muscle cells.
  • Santhi Ganesh, MD
    The Ganesh lab studies the genetics of vascular diseases leading to phenotypes such as fibromuscular dysplasia, spontaneous coronary artery dissection, visceral artery aneurysms, and other typically non-aortic arterial aneurysms and dissections.
  • Daniel Goldstein, MBBS
    The Goldstein lab is interested in how aging impacts innate immunity, focusing on aging and respiratory viral infections and aging and vascular diseases.
  • Salim Hayek, MD
    Research in the Hayek lab centers on the novel use of biomarkers for predictive and prevention-based diagnoses and disease treatment.
  • Yogen Kanthi, MD
    The Kanthi lab investigates the mechanisms of dysregulated vascular and innate immune signals in thrombosis and inflammation.
  • Daniel A. Lawrence, PhD
    The Lawrence lab studies the role of proteases and their inhibitors in health and disease, primarily focusing on the vascular biology of the CNS and disorders such as stroke; and on the development of peripheral vascular disease.
  • James H. Morrissey, PhD
    The research conducted in the Morrissey lab focuses on understanding how cells regulate blood clotting in health and disease.
  • Nadia R. Sutton, MD
    The Sutton lab is focused on the interplay of hemodynamics and the biology of vascular aging.
  • Cristen Willer, PhD
    The Willer lab focuses on the analysis of high-throughput genetic data to understand the biological basis of cardiovascular and metabolic diseases.
