Imig, John D., PhD

John Imig's laboratory specializes in building and implementing genomic "tools" in the whole animal. Our goal is to link genomic tools to physiology for discovering the genetic basis of disease, including end stage renal disease (rat and human), hypertension (rat), insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (rat), syndrome-X (rat), left ventricular hypertrophy, myocardial infarction (rat and human) and various cardiac malformations (human).

Lohr, Nicole, MD, PhD

My research focus is toward understanding the mechanisms underlying angiogenesis, which is the stimulation of new blood vessel growth. These new blood vessels have the potential to restore blood flow to previously ischemic muscle and skin, with the goal of reducing pain and tissue breakdown.

Strande, Jennifer, MD, PhD

The work in Dr. Strande’s laboratory is directed at unraveling the molecular dysfunction involved in the pathogenesis of cardiomyopathies. She studies heart disease at varying levels of biological complexity including patients, animal models and individual heart cells to obtain insights into disease mechanisms. We are currently investigating the cellular and molecular mechanisms that cause cardiomyopathy in patients with muscular dystrophy.
