Dr. Sowho’s research focuses on the integrated physiology of breathing and hemodynamics. Specifically, he is currently examining mechanisms by which upper airway obstruction during sleep affects aortic disease progression in Marfan Syndrome. He has designed and executed protocols where he quantified the mechanical load on the aorta caused by upper airway obstruction during sleep. His longer-term goal is to launch a clinical trial to determine if early detection and treatment of upper airway obstruction mitigates aortic adverse events in persons with Marfan syndrome.
