Myocardial Infarction Research Laboratory

The main goal of the Cortese-Krott lab is to enhance knowledge of the molecular mechanisms underlying cardiovascular disease including hypertension and acute myocardial infarction.  Applying a translational approach to research, involving a multilevel analysis of chemical, biochemical and pharmacological studies, we hope to contribute to the development of new diagnostics and therapeutic tools for reducing death and disability due to cardiovascular diseases.

Research of the Cortese-Krott lab include three major areas:

  • Red blood cell function and dysfunction in acute myocardial infarction and cardiovascular disease.
  • Chemistry, biochemistry and pharmacology of nitric oxide and sulfide in regulation of vascular tone and blood pressure.
  • Tissue-specific conditional mouse models of nitric oxide metabolism.
