Professor of Medicine (Cardiovascular) at SUMC
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My lab is focused on understanding the mechanism mediating acute and chronic allograft failure, in particular on the role of microvascular injury in acute allograft failure and the mechanisms of mediating transplant coronary artery disease. 1. Role of microvascular injury in acute allograft failure.

Sabine Kohler, MD, Professor in Pathology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our research focuses on gene microarray analysis of human soft tissue tumors (sarcomas). In addition we work with tissue microarrays to characterize large numbers of novel antisera raised against peptides derived from genes found to be of interest during gene array analysis.

Keith Van Haren, MD
Assistant Professor of Neurology at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our research group is dedicated to improving care for children with degenerative neurological disorders. We are particularly focused on genetic and autoimmune disorders that cause damage to the myelin (the fatty insulation around the nerves) of the brain and spinal cord. X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy (genetic) and multiple sclerosis (autoimmune) are the prototypical examples of degenerative disorders of myelin; these are the two disorders we study most intensively.

Rosemarie Hess Professor in Neonatal and Developmental Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research interests include persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn, hypoxic respiratory failure, inhaled nitric oxide therapy, ECMO, congenital diaphragmatic hernia, neonatal clinical trials, and the use of aEEG and NIRS to detect brain injury.
Vance Vanier, MD
Clinical Assistant Professor, Surgery - Emergency Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Primary and secondary prevention of disease through the use of preventive genomic medicine. Patients who have greater insight into their genetic risk for different diseases may change their lifestyles and decrease their probablity of succumbing to conditions such as diabetes and cardiovascular events. Personalized screening regimens for those at increased genetic risk, such as for colon cancer, is another important application worthy of validation.
