Research Synopsis

The Patterson laboratory uses molecular, genetic, and physiologic approaches to ask questions regarding events that underlie the processes of angiogenesis, vascular development, cardiac failure, and atherosclerosis. Our laboratory employs a wide range of methods, including standard molecular techniques, gene discovery applications, genetically modified animals, and microphysiologic techniques. We have a particular interest in understanding the genes that regulate angiogenesis, identifying stress-responsive genes that modify cardiac function, and characterizing oxidative pathways in atherogenesis.
