Senior Associate Dean for Diversity and Leadership in the School of Medicine and 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.

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.
Keith Van Haren MD
Instructor, Neurology & Neurological Sciences
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our research is focused on the immune response in multiple sclerosis (MS) and X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD), with particular interest in the role of macrophages, lipids, and oxidative stress.
Instructor, Radiology - Diagnostic Radiology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests I am interested in Positron Emission Tomography (PET) physics, instrumentation, and its application in cancer diagnosis and patient management. My work focusses on PET front-end detectors, data acquisition, and system simulation. The goal is to improve spatial and energy resolution yielding a better image quality. Currently I am working on constructing, commissioning, and characterizing a high precision, 1 mm^3 resolution breast specific PET camera.
Vance Vanier, M.D.
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.
