M3 - 4 Week Research Courses

 

Cardioprotection by far/near infrared light

Course Director:  Martin Bienengraeber, PhD

Description:  An introduction on how to conduct and participate in basic science research in Anesthesiology.  The research revolves around the role of mitochondria as triggers and effectors in protection of the heart from ischemia and stress.  Far/near infrared light will be used to induce protective mechanisms that include nitric oxide from unexpected sources such as hemoglobin and myoglobin.

Location:  MCW, Anesthesia Research Laboratories

Time Commitment:  4 weeks, Mon-Fri, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, no night call, no weekends, 100% laboratory research

 

                                                                                                                                      

 

Cardiac Extracellular Matrix in Inflammation, Fibrosis, and Heart Failure

Course Director:  Dorothee Weihrauch, DVM, PhD

Description:  The research revolves around the role of the extracellular matrix in inflammatory deseases and how altered extracellular matrix influences cell signaling.  By the end of this rotation, the student would be expected to have developed a basic understanding as well as basic skills in the area of cardiovascular research regarding the role of the extracellular matrix in signaling processes and his or her work to have contributed in part to a publishable project.

Location: MCW, Anesthesia Research Laboratories

Time Commitment:  4 weeks, Mon-Fri, 8:00 am - 5:00 pm, no night call, no weekends, 100% laboratory research

                                                                                                                                      

 

Mitochondrial Signaling in Cardioprotection

Course Director:  Amadou Camara, PhD

Description:  An introduction to provide the basic overview into how to conduct and discuss basic research in cardiovascular anesthesia.  Specifically, the research will examine how cellular and mitochondrial calcium dynamics are altered and the concomitant changes in mitochondrial bioenergetics and redox potential during and after volatile anesthetics exposure and how this may be involved in anesthetic cardioprotection against acute ischemia dn reperfusion injury.

Location:  MCW, Anesthesia Research Laboratories

Time Commitment:  4 weeks, Mon-Fri, 8:00 am - 5:00 pm, no night call, no weekends, 100% laboratory research
