Medical Student Researcher, Y. Joseph Woo, MD
Since 2002, I have conducted research in Dr. Woo's cardiothoracic surgery lab where my responsibilities include independently formulating and executing my own studies. Initially, my research entailed manipulating intracellular biochemical pathways as a method of cardio-protection during periods of ischemia and reperfusion. This led to multiple manuscripts and abstracts including a first-author publication. More recently, my work has involved myocardial regeneration and angiogenic strategies as a means of preserving cardiac function following ischemic injury.
