Conceptual Schematic

THE THREE MOST SIGNIFICANT QUESTIONS THAT DEFINE YOUR RESEARCH PROGRAM:
Is human peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM) mediated by immune processes?

Does a murine model recapitulate human PPCM?

Do circadian patterns of cardiac gene expression explain circadian patterns of cardiac arrhythmias?

FIVE KEYWORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOUR AREAS OF INTEREST:
Heart failure mechanisms, Cardiac fibrosis, Cardiac function Pregnancy-associated immune processes, Circadian gene expression

TECHNIQUES, MODELS, METHODS, ANALYTIC APPROACHES, ETC:

Murine transgenic models; heart failure Murine cardiac function; echocardiography Gene and protein expression; RTPCR, western, immunofluorescent microscopy Human cardiac tissues
