Integrative Immunological Cardiovascular Research

Using integrative models for the study of disease processes, Dr. Mariana Morris and her research team, consisting of international students, faculty and post doctoral students, have studied hypertension, heart disease, diabetes, chemical toxicity and exercise and diet. Current research focus is on understanding Gulf War Illness through a study funded by the Department of Defense. The goal of this multidisciplinary, multi-site research program is to conduct integrative, basic and clinical studies that will lead to effective disease treatments. Current methodologies in the Integrative Immunological Cardiovascular Research Lab include echocardiography, telemetric blood pressure monitoring, genomic and proteomic testing and exercise testing.
