Research Interests

Cardiac biology, protein quality control, the ubiquitin-proteasome system, MentoringDiversitycardiac metabolism, novel therapeutics for cardiac atrophy

  

Research Synopsis

 

The Willis laboratory uses physiologic, molecular, and genetic approaches to study the role of the ubiquitin proteasome system in heart failure and metabolism.  The laboratory employs standard molecular techniques, genetically modified animals, and gene discovery tools to expand our understanding of critical quality control mechanisms in heart disease to discover therapeutic targets to exploit.
