Research Lab Results for pathophysiology
Adult Cardiac Catheterization LaboratoryPrincipal Investigator:
Jon Resar, M.D.
Our group is interested in the evaluation of basic pathophysiology in patients undergoing cardi...ac procedures, development and evaluation of new therapeutic strategies, and improving patient selection and outcomes following interventional procedures. view moreResearch Areas: cardiac catheterization, Acute Myocardial Infarction
Center for Epithelial DisordersPrincipal Investigator:
Mark Donowitz, M.D.
The Johns Hopkins Center for Epithelial Disorders focuses on research into the physiology and p...athophysiology of epithelial cells (cells that line the cavities and interior surfaces of the body) of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, liver, pancreas and kidney. Specifically, the center’s research seeks to:Research Areas: gastroenterology, epithelial cells
-Understand the mechanisms regulating the activity of transport proteins (including channels) of epithelial cells
Characterize the mechanisms by which polarity of epithelial cells are maintained
-Investigate the mechanisms controlling transcription of epithelial-specific genes
Understand the pathophysiological basis of GI and renal diseases that involve the preceding three components
-The center also provides a framework for training fellows in gastroenterology and hepatology to become independent investigators.
The center is funded primarily through individual investigator-initiated extramural research grant support from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) as well as multi-investigator grants including RO1, PO1, UO1 and R24. view more
Gilotra LabPrincipal Investigator:
Nisha Gilotra, M.D.
The main focus of Dr. Gilotra's research is understanding the pathophysiology and outcomes in i...nflammatory cardiomyopathies including myocarditis and sarcoidosis, as well as improvement of heart failure patient care through noninvasive hemodynamic monitoring and studying novel strategies to reduce heart failure hospitalizations. Additional investigations involve clinical research in advanced heart failure therapies including heart transplantation and mechanical circulatory support. Dr. Gilotra is the site Principal Investigator for the NIH/NHLBI funded Heart Failure Network trials. view moreResearch Areas: heart failure, cardiology, cardiomyopathy
Gregg Semenza LabPrincipal Investigator:
Gregg Semenza, M.D., Ph.D.
The Gregg Semenza Lab studies the molecular mechanisms of oxygen homeostasis. We have cloned an...d characterized hypoxia-inducible factor 1 (HIF-1), a basic helix-loop-helix transcription factor.Research Areas: cancer, oxygen, lung disease, genomics, HIF-1, pathogenesis, myocardial ischemia
Current research investigates the role of HIF-1 in the pathophysiology of cancer, cerebral and myocardial ischemia, and chronic lung disease, which are the most common causes of mortality in the U.S. view more
Interventional Cardiology Research GroupPrincipal Investigator:
Jon Resar, M.D.
Our group is interested in a broad array of clinical and translational investigations spanning ...the evaluation of basic pathophysiology in patients undergoing cardiac procedures, development and evaluation of new therapeutic strategies, and improving patient selection and outcomes following interventional procedures. We are comprised of a core group of faculty and dedicated research nurses as well as fellows, residents, and students. Projects range from investigator-initiated single-center observational studies to industry-sponsored multicenter phase 3 randomized controlled trials. We have established a database of all patients who have undergone TAVR at Johns Hopkins, which is providing the basis for several retrospective analyses and will serve as the foundation for future studies of TAVR. We are also engaged in collaborative projects with other groups from the Department of Medicine and other Departments including Cardiac Surgery, Anesthesiology, Radiology, Psychiatry, and Biomedical Engineering. Members of our group are actively involved with the Johns Hopkins Center for Bioengineering Innovation and Design (CBID) in the development of novel minimally-invasive cardiovascular devices. view moreResearch Areas: coronary CT angiography, PCI, bioprosthetic leaflet thrombosis, myocardial regeneration, TAVR
Ivor Berkowitz LabPrincipal Investigator:
Ivor Berkowitz, M.B.B.Ch.
Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine
Research in the Ivor Berkowitz Lab targets pediatric critical care medicine. We are particularl...y interested in the pathophysiology behind the cerebrovascular dysfunction that occurs in bacterial meningitis as well as the anesthetic and perioperative complications of patients with dwarfing syndromes. view moreResearch Areas: cerebrovascular dysfunction, bacterial meningitis, dwarfing syndromes, pediatric critical care medicine
Jantzie LabPrincipal Investigator:
Lauren Jantzie, Ph.D.
Dr. Jantzie, associate professor, received her Ph.D. in Neurochemistry from the University of A...lberta in 2008. In 2013 she completed her postdoctoral fellowship in the Department of Neurology at Boston Children's Hospital & Harvard Medical School and became faculty at the University of New Mexico. Dr. Jantzie then joined the faculty Departments of Pediatrics (Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine) and Neurology at Johns Hopkins University and the Kennedy Krieger Institute in January 2019. Her lab investigates the pathophysiology of encephalopathy of prematurity, and pediatric brain injury common to infants and toddlers. Dr. Jantzie is dedicated to understanding disease processes in the developing brain as a means to identifying new therapeutic strategies and treatment targets for perinatal brain injury. Her lab studies neural substrates of cognition and executive function, inhibitory circuit formation, the role of an abnormal intrauterine environment on brain development, mechanisms of neurorepair and microglial activation and polarization. Using a diverse array of clinically relevant techniques such as MRI, cognitive assessment, and biomarker discovery, combined with traditional molecular and cellular biology, the Jantzie lab is on the front lines of translational pediatric neuroscience.? view moreResearch Areas: Neonatology, neuroscience
John Aucott LabPrincipal Investigator:
John Aucott, M.D.
Research in the John Aucott Lab focuses on the development of accurate diagnostic tests for all... stages of Lyme disease. We work closely with Dr. Mark Soloski on the Study of Lyme disease Immunology and Clinical Events (SLICE), a longitudinal, matched-control study of patients diagnosed with early untreated Lyme disease. The objective is to use the collected biological samples to help identify novel Lyme disease biomarkers that can inform diagnoses, outcomes and the knowledge about disease pathophysiology. view moreResearch Areas: clinical outcomes, gender differences, biomarkers, pathophysiology, immune heterogeneity, Lyme disease
