MizzouForward Keynote – Adipose Tissue as an endocrine mediator of cardiac physiology



January 24th | 12:00pm – 1:00pm

Acuff Auditorium (MA217)

School of Medicine

Join us for “Adipose Tissue as an endocrine mediator of cardiac physiology" a keynote presentation by, School of Medicine-MPP, Medicine (Cardiology), MizzouForward faculty candidate, Dr. Michael Tranter.  Dr. Tranter will present on his research for approximately 40-minutes with a 20-minute question and answer session to follow.


Dr. Michael Tranter is currently an Associate Professor (tenure track) in the Department of Internal Medicine, Division of Cardiovascular Health and Disease at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine.  Dr. Tranter completed his B.S. in Applied Biology at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, Terre Haute, IN and earned his Ph.D. in Molecular, Cellular, and Biochemical Pharmacology from the University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati, OH.


The long-term goals of the Tranter laboratory are to increase our understanding of the molecular mechanisms that drive cardiometabolic diseases. Ongoing projects in the lab are specifically focused on (1) the pathological progression of left ventricular hypertrophy and cardiac fibrosis leading to heart failure, (2) thermogenic metabolism in brown adipose tissue, and (3) adipose tissue-mediated endocrine effects on cardiac physiology.
