The major research interest in the Fang Lab is to understand molecular mechanisms underlying cardiac development and disease. We utilize a multidisciplinary approach, combining molecular, cellular, developmental, and physiological techniques to uncover novel therapeutic approaches for the prevention and treatment of cardiac diseases.

Research projects

  • Transcriptional regulation in cardiac development and disease
  • Mitochondrial phospholipid metabolism and mitochondrial stress response (MSR) pathways
  • Molecular mechanisms and treatment of cardiomyopathy in Barth Syndrome (BTHS)
  • Right ventricle development and congenital right ventricle defects
