报告人简介:

Gerald W. Dorn II received his medical degree from the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, SC. After a brief stint on the faculty at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, Dr. Dorn moved to the University of Cincinnati where he rose through the ranks to become Chief of the Division of Cardiology and Associate Dean for Cardiovascular Services. During this period, Dorn’s interest in G-protein coupled neurohormonal signaling pathways that mediate cardiac hypertrophy and its progression to heart failure bore early fruit as a series of genetic mouse models in which cardiac-specific manipulation of Gαq or its downstream effectors activated intrinsic genetic programs for cardiomyocyte growth and/or programmed death. As Principal Investigator of NHLBI P50 SCOR and SCCOR programs at the University of Cincinnati, Dorn and his co-investigators began studying human genetic variants linked to heart disease, modeling the human polymorphisms and mutations in experimental systems for mechanistic investigations. Dorn moved to Washington University in St. Louis in 2008 to become the inaugural Philip and Sima K Needleman Professor and the Associate Chair (Internal Medicine) for Translational Research. The Dorn laboratory investigates multiple aspects of genetic reprogramming in heart failure, with research efforts in cardiac signaling and mitochondrial mechanisms of heart, and increasingly neurological, disease. Their recent efforts have elucidated mechanistic interactions between mitochondrial dynamics proteins, mitophagy factors, and mitochondrial biogenesis pathways in the heart and neurological system, identifying processes for cardiomyocyte mitochondrial and metabolic maturation and neuronal degeneration.
