Cardiovascular Development and Metabolic Disease

Musunuru Laboratory

Our goal is to understand how human genetic variation protects or predisposes some people to myocardial infarction, sudden cardiac death, and other cardiovascular disorders and to use that information to prevent disease.

Lee Laboratory

Our goal is to understand heart failure and metabolic diseases that accompany human aging, as these diseases are now major barriers to healthy aging. We are interested in translating that understanding into therapies, including stem cell transplantation strategies and new biological agents.
