Danuta Szczesna-Cordary, PhD Email: email@example.com Myosin Light Chain Mutant Induced Cardiomyopathies The major theme of my research regards myosin and troponin-mediated cellular events that result in sarcomere shortening and muscle contraction studied at the molecular, myofilament and organ levels. Our recent research interests concentrate on the molecular and genetic causes of cardiomyopathy with a special […]

Yoel’s research will focus on Essential Light Chain (ELC) mutations that lead to cardiomyopathy via changes in ELC structure, and the ability of myosin to effectively interact with actin, ultimately leading to dysregulated cardiac muscle contraction. He will also be studying how mutations in ELC regulate the Super-Relaxed State of myosin and will additionally look […]
The Szczesna- Cordary lab welcomes Ulises, undergraduate student at the University of Miami studying biochemistry and Italian! During his time in the lab, he will first be shadowing graduate students, assistant and research scientists to get more familiar with the equipment and projects in the lab and will eventually have a project on his own! […]
Hance is an undergraduate at the University of Miami, where he majors in biochemistry and aspire to enter the MD/PhD program following undergraduate studies. Hance has previously worked in the army where he most recently served as Staff Sergeant/Medical Sergeant. We hope you will enjoy your time in the DSC lab and hope you will […]
