Boudreau earns third active R01

Ryan Boudreau, PhD, associate professor in Cardiovascular Medicine, received a four-year, $1.5M R01 grant from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute. Boudreau will use this funding to further examine the role of mitoregulin, a protein his team recently discovered, in cardiac biology and disease. Boudreau now holds three R01s, all of which focus on […]

Boudreau examines genetic underpinnings of heart failure

Ryan Boudreau, PhD, assistant professor in Cardiovascular Medicine, received a four-year, $1.54M R01 grant from the NIH for his proposed study “The genomic interface of microRNA regulation and heart failure.” Boudreau explains that a complex intersection between environmental and hereditary factors contributes to the clinical course of heart failure. However, researchers currently have limited knowledge […]

Boudreau receives $1.9M R01

Ryan Boudreau, PhD, assistant professor in Cardiovascular Medicine, was awarded a five-year, $1.9M NIH R01. This funding will support Boudreau’s further investigation of the cardiovascular effects of a genetic variant in SCN5A, the gene that encodes the Nav1.5 sodium channel that provides the required electrical activity to initiate each heartbeat. In a former study, Boudreau’s […]
