Mark Uline

Dr. Uline focus is Molecular modeling of lipid-protein interactions.

List Thumbnail

Camilla Ferreira Wenceslau

Dr. Wenceslau lab is to understand vascular physiology in cardiovascular diseases. Study the mechanisms associated with the vascular-immune network in hypertension, metabolic syndrome and sepsis.

Bernardine Pinto

Dr. Pinto research focuses on the promotion of healthy lifestyles, particularly, regular physical activity for the prevention and management of chronic diseases in middle-aged and older adults.

Donald DiPette

Dr. DiPette long-term research and clinical interest involve understanding the pathophysiology and novel treatment modalities of hypertension and cardiovascular disease.

List Thumbnail

Susan Lessner

Dr. Lessner works in the area of vascular biomechanics, with a focus on how vascular remodeling alters the mechanical function of arteries in the context of atherosclerosis, aortic aneurysm, and ageing.

List Thumbnail

Mark Sarzynski

Dr. Sarzynski’s FLEX lab employs a multi-omics approach to identify molecular biomarkers associated with the response of cardiometabolic traits to lifestyle and exercise interventions.

List Thumbnail

Mohamad Azhar

Dr. Azhar focuses on the role of Transforming Growth Factor Beta Ligands in Cardiovascular Development and Cardiovascular Disease.

Robert “Bob” Price

Dr. Bob Price is Director of the Instrumentation Resource Facility which is a core biotechnology facility available for use by all in  the CTRC. 

List Thumbnail

Cindy Corbett

Dr. Cindy Corbett’s research focuses on health system and self-management interventions to improve health outcomes for adults with chronic conditions. 

List Thumbnail

Francis G. Spinale

Dr. Spinale is an internationally renowned cardiovascular scientist, who has directed a translational research effort in the thematic area of cardiovascular remodeling with a particular focus upon heart failure, the main cause of death and disability in South Carolina, for over the past two decades.

List Thumbnail

Fernanda Priviero

Dr. Priviero lab focuses on the role of the innate immune system in the development of vascular damage, erectile dysfunction, and bladder complications in models of obesity, type-2 diabetes, or hypertension, and how physical exercise or food supplements could modulate the innate immune system to prevent or treat vascular and erectile dysfunction.

List Thumbnail

Jay Potts

Dr. Potts lab uses developmental biology principles in regenerative medicine approaches to study cardiac development and disease.

List Thumbnail

Wenbin Tan

Dr. Tan lab focuses on the pathogenesis of congenital vascular malformations and COVID-19-related vasculopathy. 

List Thumbnail

Lydia Matesic

Dr. Matesic lab utilizes genetically engineered mouse models to study the effects of how altered regulation of protein homeostasis in the heart can promote developmental defects, lethal arrhythmias, and impaired cardiac relaxation (which contributes to a form of heart failure commonly seen in the aging population).

List Thumbnail

Wayne Carver

Dr. Carver’s research focuses on the mechanisms underlying cardiac fibroblast activation and fibrosis in cardiovascular disease and how insight into these may lead to novel therapeutic approaches.

List Thumbnail

Tarek Shazly

Dr. Shazly focus is on cardiovascular mechanics and remodeling, with focus of biomaterial-based therapies.

List Thumbnail

Rich Goodwin

Dr. Goodwin's research focuses on the mechanisms of cardiovascular development and disease.

List Thumbnail

Melissa Moss

Dr. Moss’s research focuses on the involvement of protein aggregation in Alzheimer’s disease. 

List Thumbnail

Susan K. Wood

Dr. Wood research program focuses on identifying neural mechanisms regulating social stress-induced behavioral and autonomic dysfunction, with an emphasis in understanding how females are more stress susceptible.
