Cardiac development and repair: role of coronary arteries
This seminar will be held on Microsoft Teams. Please join with your video off and mikes muted. Email for more details.
Developing organisms create tissues de novo, and the underlying instructions could inform organ regeneration. With this mindset, we study coronary arteries — which bring blood flow to heart muscle — in hopes of eventually treating coronary artery disease, the number one killer worldwide. We have discovered how mouse coronary arteries are built, and reinstated developmental pathways in adults to aid recovery following cardiac injury.


Dr Red-Horse is an Associate Professor at Stanford University’s Department of Biology and Institute for Stem Cell Biology & Regenerative Medicine. Her laboratory studies how coronary vessels of the heart develop during embryogenesis and how they regenerate following cardiac injury. Dr Red-Horse received her PhD from the University of California, San Francisco and was a Postdoctoral Fellow at Genentech, Inc. and Stanford University.
