- Heart? Brain? We got 'em and study them both. We are actively looking for individuals who are interested in getting experience in a research laboratory setting. The Wills-Schisler lab uses observations from clinical-based studies such as GWAS, exome sequencing, metabolomics, and methylation to develop molecular, cellular, and animal-based models to understand the pathophysiological impact of these observations. Disease areas include genetic mutations, cerebellar ataxias, accelerated aging, atherosclerosis, cardiac hypertrophy, and cardiac/skeletal muscle wasting. We employ dietary, exercise, and pharmacological interventions to improve health and quality of life.
