Parvatiyar Lab

Parvatiyar lab activities

The Parvatiyar lab is focused on understanding on how remodeling of proteins in the cardiac sarcolemma influences cardiac function as well as the development of cardiometabolic disease. We have found an intriguing role for a sarcolemma protein in the persistence of chronic inflammation that appears to exacerbate cardiac and metabolic dysfunction. Ongoing studies are examining immune signaling and metabolic pathways to better understand factors affecting the communication between adipocytes and cells in the heart.
