Research Grand Rounds: Mechanisms and targeted therapies for preeclampsia

Date Fri, Oct 7
Time 12: 00 PM - 1: 00 PM
Location Zoom

This month's Research Grand Rounds features Dr. Karumanchi, who is a Professor of Medicine and Medallion Chair in Vascular Biology at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.  Dr. Karumanchi will discuss “Mechanisms and targeted therapies for preeclampsia.”

Dr. Karumanchi is a Professor of Medicine and Medallion Chair in Vascular Biology at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. 

His basic, translational, and clinical research, which has been supported by the NIH (NHLBI, NIDDK, NCI), AHA, HHMI, and Gates Foundation among others, focuses on pathogenic mechanisms and the development of novel diagnostic and therapeutic approaches to hypertensive disorders in pregnancy and chronic renal disease.

His talk will focus on the role of endothelial growth factors in the pathogenesis of preeclampsia and understanding the implications of these mechanisms for the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of preeclampsia and related hypertensive disorders.

Research Grand Rounds are sponsored by the Georgetown-Howard Universities Center for Clinical and Translational Science (GHUCCTS) and MedStar Health Research Institute to bring together our diverse clinical and research communities to share research that spans disciplines and stages of translation to improve individual and community health.
