Physiology Seminar – TODAY January 28th at 3:30pm


The Department of Physiology continues its Zoom seminar series for the academic year 2020-2021 by welcoming Dr. Michael Kapiloff, MD, PhD, an Associate Professor at Stanford University where he is a member of the Cardiovascular Institute and the Departments of Ophthalmology and Medicine (Cardiovascular Medicine).

Title: Signalosomes and Pathological Cardiac Remodeling

Date: Thursday, January 28th

Time: 3:30 – 4:30pm

Background: Committed to full-time basic research, Dr. Kapiloff is an expert in cellular signaling with an interest in how specificity is conferred by multimolecular protein complexes called “signalosomes.” In particular, his laboratory studies the basic molecular mechanisms underlying the response of the cardiac myocyte and retinal ganglion cell to pathological stress. Recently, his lab has been involved in the translation of these basic signaling concepts into new therapies, including the development of new AAV gene therapy biologics for the treatment of heart failure and retinal diseases. Dr. Kapiloff has been named a Fellow of the American Heart Association and the American Physiological Society and a member of the American Society for Clinical Investigation and has served in leadership roles for the American Heart Association and the International Society of Heart Research.
