Research Lab Results for vascular biology
Daniel Nyhan LabLab WebsitePrincipal Investigator:
Daniel Nyhan, M.B.B.Ch., M.D.
Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine
The Daniel Nyhan Lab studies vascular changes that accompany aging to determine the underlying ...causes and find ways to reverse the process. One goal of our research is to identify the factors that cause vascular stiffness. Our hope is that our work in vascular biology will lead to new ways to improve vascular compliance and thereby improve cardiovascular function and perioperative risk. view moreResearch Areas: hypertension, cardiovascular, vascular biology, vascular diseases
Dhananjay Vaidya LabPrincipal Investigator:
Jay Vaidya, M.B.B.S., Ph.D., M.P.H.
Research conducted in the Dhananjay Vaidya Lab focuses on the prevention of heart disease, with... special emphasis on cardiometabolic risk factors, genetics in high-risk families, cardiovascular epidemiology, statistics and vascular biology. We also provide consultation on study design as well as plan and oversee data analyses for projects supported by the Center for Child and Community Health Research. view moreResearch Areas: heart disease, epidemiology, data analysis, cardiometabolic risk factors, statistics, study design, cardiovascular, genomics, vascular biology
Mahendra Damarla LabPrincipal Investigator:
Mahendra Damarla, M.D.
Work in the Mahendra Damarla Lab focuses primarily on the field of vascular biology. Much of ou...r research involves exploring alternatives to mechanical ventilation as a therapy for acute lung injury. We investigate mitogen-activated protein kinase-activated protein kinase 2 as a method to mediate apoptosis during lung vascular permeability by regulating movement of cleaved caspase 3. We have also conducted research on the prevalence of confirmatory tests in patients hospitalized with congestive heart failure or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). view moreResearch Areas: critical care medicine, acute lung injury, lung disease, COPD, vascular biology, hypoxia
Rachel Damico LabPrincipal Investigator:
Rachel Damico, M.D., Ph.D.
Work in the Rachel Damico Lab explores topics within the fields of vascular biology and pulmona...ry medicine, with a focus on acute lung injury and apoptosis in lung diseases. Our studies have included examining idiopathic and scleroderma-associated pulmonary arterial hypertension, vascular receptor autoantibodies, and the link between inflammation and the Warburg phenomenon in patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension. We have also researched the inhibitory factor of macrophage migration and its governing of endothelial cell sensitivity to LPS-induced apoptosis. view moreResearch Areas: critical care medicine, acute lung injury, lung disease, vascular biology, apoptosis
