Zaman Lab

Zaman’s Lab focuses on the design and development of novel cutting-edge multi-mode imaging systems to overcome current limitations in clinical systems. Most recent research project is involved with the design and developed of a multimode catheter-based imaging system called a Circumferential Intravascular Radioluminescence Photoacoustic Imaging (CIRPI) for early detection of thin-cap-fibro-atheroma (TCFA), the underlying causes of coronary artery disease, one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in the USA and worldwide. Further, the CIRPI system characterizes the plaques based on disease tissue compositions to unravel their complex structures. This CIRPI system integrates optical, photoacoustic, radioluminescence and ultrasound imaging. We seek to better understand the underlying causes of the disease mechanisms. We are dissecting the role of TCFA perturbations on vascular wall processes during atherosclerosis progression. Our lab also studying novel molecular imaging methods to study coronary arterial disease, carotid stenosis, and myocardial ischemia in subcellular level.

Zang (Qun Sophia) Lab

Zang Lab investigates the molecular mechanisms underlying the pathogenesis of sepsis. We use the heart as a model, since cardiac dysfunction is a vital component of multi-organ failure during sepsis.

  • Qun Sophia Zang, Ph.D.

Zeng Lab

Zeng Lab is interested in understanding at the molecular level key questions lying at the interface between biochemistry, cell biology, metabolic and neural physiology, including the bidirectional communication between autonomic neurons and adipocytes, the molecular basis of the phenotypic plasticity, or the lack of, in brown, beige and white adipocytes, and roles of uncharacterized enzymatic pathways in adipose thermogenesis.
