HS17 - Parker Hub Site

My research team's focus is on understanding cellular mechanotransduction in the heart. Specifically, we are interested in how extracellular matrix and cytoskeletal architecture potentiate and modulate the activation of mechanochemical and mechanoelectrical signaling pathways and genetic programs in cardiac cells and tissues. In order to study these mechanisms at different spatial scales, we use cellular and tissue engineering techniques that allow us to build custom-designed cardiac myocytes and ventricular tissue constructs as experimental preparations.
