Research Focus:

Liver cancer cell signaling and hepatic I/R injury

Jack D. Myers Professor and Chair, Department of Medicine
Research Focus:
  • The nitrite anion is a circulating storage pool for NO bioactivity that regulates hypoxic vasodilation and the cellular resilience to low oxygen and ischemia
  • A novel physiological function for hemoglobin as an electronically- and allosterically-regulated nitrite reductase
  • The characterization of a novel mechanism of disease, hemolysis-associated endothelial dysfunction
  • The mechanistic, clinical, and epidemiological description of a human disease syndrome, hemolysis-associated pulmonary hypertension.
  • The biochemistry of hemoglobin superfamily members, including neuroglobin, and relevance to carbon monoxide poisoning
