RFA on EC-cardiomyocyte interactions in the mechanisms and treatments of cardiovascular diseases

Often under recognized, the cardiac endothelial cells are highly abundant in the heart, and may have important roles in modulating cardiac function, besides simply serving as structural component of blood vessels. Evidences of ours and others have indicated an emerging role of cardiac endothelial cells signaling to cardiomyocytes to mediate important pathophysiological responses. Nonetheless, detailed mechanisms of... more »

Impact of each VOC Crisis in patients with sickle cell disease

While the long term cumulative effects of frequency, duration and severity of VOC on mortality is known in SCD, there is little known about the impact of each individual crisis or the amount of damage during crisis versus background smoldering ischemia from the disease. Any effort in quantifying this for SCD in the absence of interventional agents initially, and then as a potential measurement of the benefit of drug... more »

Goal 2: Reduce Human Disease

Novel methods to diagnose and treat microvascular ischemia

Microvascular ischemia is common, particularly in the setting of critical illness. We need better ways to evaluate, diagnose and treat these conditions, whether they relate to microvascular myocardial ischemia, as a primary diagnosis of complication of other acute illness, or non-myocardial ischemia during the course of surgery, injury, infection or acute illness.
