Atluri Cardiovascular Research Lab

Our lab focuses on developing novel therapeutics for both acute and chronic heart failure.  Using molecular and tissue engineering approaches that harness the power of myocardial regeneration, neovascularizaton, and optimization of myocyte function we address the problem of heart failure.   Analysis is performed in both in both small and large animal models with the ultimate focus of rapid clinical translation of therapeutic strategies. We have worked with novel biomaterials to optimize therapeutic efficiency and provide minimally invasive delivery options.

Clinical investigation is focused on optimization of heart transplant, mechanical circulatory support, and minimally invasive and robotic cardiac surgical procedures.
