Northwestern Mutual Professor, Department of Medicine
Dr. Gutterman is actively involved in clinical practice, supervises a NIH funded research laboratory and provides senior administrative oversight of research administration at the Medical College of Wisconsin. He has served in a leadership role in a variety of national and international cardiovascular scientific organizations.
Research Technologist II
Within Dr. Gutterman’s lab my primary role is to collect and analyze experimental data for multiple research projects and to provide support where needed to meet the goals of the laboratory faculty. I have background in cell biology and regenerative medicine and an interest in genetics and physiology.
Research Technologist II
Jasmine Linn is a Research Technologist II and laboratory manager for the Beyer, Gutterman, and Zhang Laboratories. Her primary role is to provide research support for multiple ongoing projects within our group in the area of cell culture, molecular work, fluorescent imaging, and microvessel functional studies. In addition to her lab work, she manages the budget, purchasing, and other administrative duties for the lab. Jasmine graduated with a Bachelor's in Microbiology as well as a Bachelor’s in Animal Sciences from Iowa State University.
Research Technologist I
Dr. David Gutterman’s lab uses discarded surgical tissue for functional vessel studies and I am in charge of all the tissue collection related to this research and maintain a database of all the samples collected. I also make various solutions used in these studies and perform many general lab tasks to help the other lab members meet their research goals.
Andrew D. Kadlec
MD/PhD Student; Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP)
Andy Kadlec is an MD/PhD student in the Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) at MCW. His research interests include studying vascular biology from a largely translational approach. In collaboration with Dr. David Gutterman, Dr. Beyer serves as a key mentor and collaborator for his research efforts. Together, they aim to uncover the regulatory role played by the mitochondria within the murine and human vascular endothelium. Andy’s project investigates the interaction between PGC-1alpha, a key player in mitochondrial biogenesis, and telomerase within the context of atherosclerotic disease. They hope to identify novel vascular targets to combat atherosclerosis.
As a graduate student in Dr. Gutterman’s lab, I am interested in endothelium-independent vascular pathophysiology. Currently, my focus lays in the area of ion channel-mediated hyperpolarization and relaxation of vascular smooth muscle cells in the microcirculation which is critical in regulating myocardial perfusion. Using cannulated vessels in combination with electrophysiological and molecular techniques, I plan to examine the role coronary artery disease (CAD) has in modulating voltage-activated potassium channel-mediated hyperpolarization of vascular smooth muscle cells and dilation of resistant coronary arterioles.
