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.

Andrew D. Kadlec, PhD
MD Student; Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP)
akadlec@mcw.edu

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.
