Blood vessels respond to injury and various hemodynamic and metabolic stimuli by changing physiologic properties or mechanical properties such as diameter and wall thickness. This process of structural adaptation, known as vascular remodeling, may improve vascular function or may cause adverse effects, such as occlusion of blood flow, loss of arterial integrity, promotion of thrombotic events, or aneurysm and rupture of the blood vessel. I am a physician scientist, and my laboratory is focused on the genetics of vascular remodeling as it pertains to the development of common diseases, such as hypertension, as well as rare diseases such as fibromuscular dysplasia and spontaneous arterial dissections, which may cause stroke, heart attacks, and severe hypertension in children and adults. We have an interest in mechanisms of sex differences in cardiovascular diseases, and our lab works on a number of diseases that disproportionately burden women or children and have been historically under-studied, and are areas of significant unmet clinical needs. We collaborate across disciplines to ascertain patients and implement a variety of gene discovery approaches and functional modeling approaches in the lab. We investigate novel gene discoveries in mechanistic studies using molecular genetic, cellular, and vascular biology techniques, including in vitro, ex vivo, and in vivo models of disease. We are seeking students with an interest in human genetics, molecular genetics or vascular biology as it pertains to the biologic basis of cardiovascular diseases. Trainees can expect to gain exposure to multidisciplinary collaborations as well as the translational and clinical impact of our research.
