Description of CVI Expertise

CVI Program Unit(s):
Myocyte Biology / Heart Failure
Thrombosis / Hemostasis

CVI Research Description:
Primary research focus: pathogenesis and therapy - inherited myopathies, including cardiomyopathies. In particular we have made recent progress in vector mediated gene delivery to the heart and respiratory muscles, a critical step in the develpment of durable therapy for many forms of muscular dystrophy.

In addition, my laboratory has been involved in collaborative studies (with Drs. Katherin High and Valder Arruda) on gene therapy for hemoplia, using a vascular approach to vector delivery in skeletal muscle to achieve systemic restoration of factor IX.
