Santanu Chakraborty

Assistant Professor

Being a molecular physiologist and developmental biologist in training, my primary research interest is in heart development and disease. My teaching experiences are also in the area of development and molecular biology. Currently, my research laboratory will investigate the role of Tbx20, a T-box transcription factor gene in regulation of cardiomyocyte (heart muscle cell) proliferation and Adamts4, a matrix metalloprotease in regulation of extracellular matrix remodeling during heart development and disease. As long-term goals, I am also interested in cancer biology (proliferation and cell cycle control) and developmental gene re-activation following adult cardiac diseases like myocardial infarction or heart attack.
