Cardiovascular Genomics and Genetics Research

Dr. Lucia Carbone in her research lab

The cardiovascular genomics and genetics research laboratories in the Knight Cardiovascular Institute work to understand the molecular basis of cardiovascular development and health through the application of innovative technologies. Current projects of interest include:

  • Exploring both early and late in life events that shape heart physiology, anatomy, and disease progression through genomics and epigenomics tools. 
  • Investigating the contribution of placental defects, germline mutations, and epigenetic misregulation on lifetime cardiovascular disease risk.


Postdoctoral and other research positions are available within the cardiovascular genomics and genetics research laboratories of the Knight Cardiovascular Institute.
