Research and Practice Interests

My research interests include cardiovascular systems control from the cellular to the intact organism. Specific research expertise areas wihtin this topic include; (1) tissue, cellular, and molecular changes during heart failure and the effects of cell-based therapies and pharmacological interventions, (2) non-invasive imaging (ultrasound and nuclear) technologies, (3) heart and heart cell biomechanics, fluid dynamics and biomaterials, (4) biomedical engineering related to caardiovascular devices and drugs, (5) systems mechanisms of cardiovascular drugs, and (6) adaptations to environmental stress (including low oxygen, cold temperature and gavitational extremes).

STEM CELL BASED APPROACHES to HEART TISSUE REGENERATION after HEART ATTACK:  Our most recent NIH-funded (through 2017) collaborative work is probing the capacity of engineered and programmed pluripotent stem cells to regenerate functional heart tissue following experimental myocardial ischemia (coronary artery occlusion) including heart muscle cells and new blood vessels that integrate with and connect to native muscle cells and blood vessels.  With this research program we are probing the role of specific microRNAs in producing desired outcomes, and in the use of genetically engineered stem cells to differentiate into heart tissue lineages and to elaborate cell derived molecular signals which attract circulating peripheral stem cells to participate in tissue repair and regeneration.

NON-INVASIVE MOLECULAR & ULTRASOUND IMAGING: We are currently exploring adrenergic neuronal dynamics and programmed cell death (apoptosis) with radionuclide labeled reporter molecules. We are applying dynamic molecular imaging methods to assess early autonomic and cardiovascular biomarkers of certain neurodegenerative disorders.  We use heart cells, isolated hearts, and intact cardiovascular systems (animal models)to study key receptor and transporter protein-based events that may be adaptive to heart disease or responsive to drug interventions. We have reported previously on myocardial mechanics and on pharmacokinetics and radionuclide imaging of tissue uptake and perfusion in normal, ischemic and hyperemic regions of the heart with novel technetium-99m labeled ligands. In earlier studies, we have reported on features of fluorcarbon-based artificial blood and on the potential for F-19 NMR technology to image in vivo oxygen concentration of certain compartments and tissues.

TISSUE BIOMECHANICS: For more than 3 decades, tissue mechanical studies of blood vessels and heart muscle combined with fluid dynamics studies have been integral to my studies of the cardiovascular system. Characterization of soft tissue (e.g., heart muscle) responses to acute and chronic loss of blood supply or to the action of cardiovascular drugs (e.g., cardiac inotropic agents, vasodilators, calcium channel blocking agents) has yielded important data of tissue responses to ischemia and ischemia-reperfusion (i.e., "heart attacks") and to the capacity of the heart to generate new blood vessel growth (angiogenesis).

MEMBRANE TECHNOLOGY APPLIED TO BIOMEDICINE: We are just completing in 2012 a decade-long NSF-funded IGERT training program for graduate students in pursuit of doctoral degrees with bio-applications of membrane science and technology. This program succeeded a Whitaker Foundation funded UC Center for Cardiovascular Biomaterials which I directed from 1993 - an interdisciplinary program promoting collaborative research within and between faculty and graduate students at the University of Cincinnati & Case Western Reserve University.

CARDIOVASCULAR MECHANISMS OF DRUG ACTION: For more a substantial part of my professional career I have focused on understanding the direct mechanisms of important cl
