    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse overview
    Heart failure is a leading cause of death in developed countries. Recent advances in interventional cardiology and cardiac surgery have made it possible to save numerous patient lives after myocardial infarction. However, those patients eventually develop end-stage heart failure since the loss of cardiac muscle is never replaced with new muscle. Our study focus is on regenerating cardiac muscle by transdifferentiating cardiac fibroblasts into cardiomyocytes. We reported that Gata4, Mef2c, and Tbx5 overexpression transdifferentiated cardiac fibroblasts into cardiomyocyte-like cells in vitro, and improved cardiac function in vivo. Our goal is to translate this in-situ cardiomyocyte regeneration into clinical therapy.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
