Cell-Cell and Cell-Matrix Proteins in the Cardiomyocyte: Focus on ZO Proteins

Date: Nov. 6, 2020

Virtual Access:
Virginia Tech and Carilion Clinic faculty, staff, and students will be sent an email with Zoom login credentials. Participants may also watch the lecture via YouTube livestream on our Live Webcast page.

Dr. Ross's lab has studied the role cell-cell and cell-matrix proteins in the myocardium for many years. For this the lab makes extensive use of mouse models, cells derived from them and as possible, even human genetics. In this seminar he will summarize data from some of his prior work and primarily focus on new data where he and his lab have identified unique roles of Zonula Occluden-1 in the myocardium.
