Daniel M. Collier, Ph.D. 

Assistant Professor,
Pharmaceutical Sciences

University of Tennessee Health Science Center

The Collier Lab studies ion channel function in cardiovascular physiology and disease. With techniques that range from single channel electrophysiology to fast 4D imaging using a diSPIM system, we are able to connect ion channel activity and pharmacology to vascular function in ex vivo pressurized resistance arteries. While Dr. Collier typically catches fewer fish than Dr. Gonzales, they are generally better quality.


Swapnil K. Sonkusare, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor,

Molecular Physiology and Biological Physics

Robert M. Berne Cardiovascular Research Center

University of Virginia - School of Medicine

Dr. Swapnil Sonkusare's laboratory studies how calcium signaling networks within cellular microdomains regulate vascular function, and are impaired in disease conditions. The ultimate goal is to discover much needed new therapeutic targets for treating vascular dysfunction in cardiovascular diseases.
