Pioneers in Biomedical Research Seminar: Novel Regulators of Cardiac Maturation
About this Seminar
Cardiac maturation is an orchestrated process that allows cardiac cells to acquire their structural, metabolic and conduction characteristics. The Boudina Lab identified PRDM16 as a key transcriptional regulator of cardiac maturation. Mutation (human) and deletion (Mouse) of PRDM16 results in impaired cardiac maturation and causes cardiomyopathy.
This is a free event hosted by the Fralin Biomedical Research Institute and co-sponsored by the institute's Center for Vascular and Heart Research. The Pioneers in Biomedical Research Seminar Series, which runs annually from September to May, has featured leading biomedical researchers from throughout the country since the program began in 2012. The lectures are also open to all members of the Virginia Tech community including graduate students, undergraduates, faculty, and staff, as well as the public.
