CENTER FOR MOLECULAR AND TRANSLATIONAL MEDICINE
The Center for Molecular and Translational Medicine is designed to convert significant research findings into diagnostic tools and medicines that will improve health and help millions of people suffering from heart disease, diabetes and other illnesses.
The Center for Molecular and Translational Medicine is focused on cardiovascular remodeling in obesity and obesity-related diseases, including diabetes, hypertension, heart diseases and stroke, with emphasis on the regulation of these processes.
Using a multidisciplinary approach, its scientists employ physical, chemical, biological and medical techniques to describe molecular structures and mechanisms, identify fundamental molecular and genetic errors of disease and develop molecular interventions to correct them. In addition to contributing to a fundamental understanding of these systems, the studies have clinical relevance to obesity and obesity-related cardiovascular diseases.
