UT Health Science Center at San Antonio Cardiovascular Proteomics Center: Merry L. Lindsey, Ph.D.

  Merry Lindsey, PhD, FAHA2, FAPS
Director, Jackson Center for Heart Research
University of Mississippi Medical Center
Department of Physiology & Biophysics
Richard A. Lange, MD, MBA
Professor & Executive Vice Chair of Medicine
University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio

Our center is dedicated to performing cardiovascular research that involves:

Developing multidimensional approaches to examine the mechanisms whereby the left ventricle responds to injury;
Applying the knowledge gained to develop therapeutic strategies to prevent, slow, or reverse the progression to heart failure;
Disseminating our results to the general, scientific, and medical communities.
