W. Robb MacLellan, MD | Professor of Medicine and Division Head
The main interest in Dr. MacLellan's lab is to understand the molecular mechanisms
that regulate cardiac failure and develop therapies to regenerate
myocardium. His lab extensively uses genetic mouse models in an attempt to
correlate molecular insights with whole organ physiology. The long-term
goal of his research to develop stem cell and tissue engineering
strategies to repair the heart.
