Biography :

I have a broad background in vascular surgery and vascular biology, with specific training and expertise in key research areas of angiogenesis/arteriogenesis, vascular remodeling and atherogenesis. I graduated from the Capital Medical University in Beijing, China with a MD degree in clinical medicine. As a vascular surgeon, my research was mainly clinical or translational. I have performed several retrospective case series studies on Budd-Chiari’s syndrome, aortic aneurysm and Takayasu’s disease.As a Postdoctoral Fellow and a Research Scientist at Yale University School of Medicine, I carried out multiple studies focused on molecular regulation of ischemia induced angiogenesis/arteriogenesis and flow dependent and/or arterial injury induced vascular remodeling. My independent research career has started in 2010 and, the primary research goals in my laboratory are to understand the molecular control of vascular remodelling and angiogenesis/arteriogenesis in response to arterial injury, atherosclerosis and ischemia. We have intensively used mouse genetic, cell biological and biochemical approaches to achieve these goals.

Dr. Wangs research interests lie in cardiovascular pharmacology and physiology, hypertension, salt sensitivity, and hormonal and neuronal control of blood pressure. Her project in the CNBI focuses on defining the role of biomimetic interfaces in medical research. Specifically, she will use the biosensor or biosensor array that contains embedded membrane proteins for characterizing the function of these proteins, for screening novel exogenous or endogenous agonists or antagonists, and for continuous, real time, and in-situ measurement of local tissue concentrations of neuropeptides and hormones. It is anticipated that the data generated from these studies will provide the molecular basis for our understanding of the pathogenesis of human essential hypertension and for the development of antihypertensive regimens.

Biography :

My research efforts are focused on understanding the molecular mechanisms of heart failure, a complex, multifactorial syndrome characterized by both cardiac and systemic disturbances. Heart failure is a leading cause of death and disability in Western society, affecting more than 5 million Americans. It is clear from our recent work that an insult – whether environmental or genetic – triggers a multitude of changes at the cellular level that ultimately result in organ level dysfunction. My laboratory utilizes a number of unique models in order to address the mechanism of cardiac dysfunction including a mouse myocardial infarction model and transgenic mouse models of progressive heart failure. Additionally, our collaborative efforts allow us to study a large animal (bovine) model of right heart dysfunction and collaborations with the surgeons at the University of Colorado Hospital provide access to human heart samples – allowing elucidation of relevant pathways in human cardiac tissue.

Dr. Jose Wiley has worked tirelessly to provide critical medical services to the disadvantaged and underprivileged around the world. He embarked on this mission in Puerto Rico, where he completed medical school at the Universidad Central del Caribe, Bayamon, Puerto Rico in June 1994.That same year he joined the United States Army Reserve and quickly rose to his current rank of Lieutenant Colonel. He then moved to New Orleans, Louisiana and completed a residency in internal medicine at the Tulane University School of Medicine in June 1998. He subsequently completed a fellowship in cardiology at the same university in June 2001. On this year he served as chief cardiology fellow. He was also awarded with the Albert Hyman fellow of the year award for his exemplary performance as a cardiology fellow. During that period he developed an epidemiologic study of cardiovascular disease in Hispanics in New Orleans.  The product of this study was published and presented at the Southern Medical Society annual meeting in 1999 winning an honorific mention. Dr. Wiley was also recognized in 1999 by the major of New Orleans, Hon. Marc Morial, Jr., and awarded with the Honorary Citizenship of the city of New Orleans for his volunteer medical services on the Hispanic population of the city.  He subsequently completed an interventional cardiology fellowship at The Ochsner Clinic Foundation in June 2002.
