In the course of my studies in the field of cardiac and muscle biology I realized the existence of a gap of knowledge on how protein synthesis is regulated in myocytes. Despite the fact that increased synthesis of specific proteins is required for disease onset and progression in muscle, only little is known about the dynamics regulating protein translation during pathologic conditions. My laboratory is working at unraveling the complexity of gene expression regulation and post-transcriptional control of protein synthesis in heart and skeletal muscle.

Louis N. and Arnold M. Katz Basic Research Prize
The Louis N. and Arnold M. Katz Prize encourages new investigators to continue research careers in basic cardiovascular science. This award historically has recognized research involving biochemical, cellular, molecular and genetic sciences, and now includes whole animal studies, especially those related to the creation of new genetic lines.
