NARRATIVE:

The primary research interest in this laboratory is to define the abnormalities in the control of regional blood flow and the sympathetic nervous system that accompany congestive heart failure. Chronic heart failure in rats (myocardial infarction) and humans is currently being investigated. The role of the sympathetic nervous system in heart failure is being evaluated by 3H-norepinephrine kinetic studies using multicompartmental modeling in humans and isolated perfused rat hearts.
