November 29th | 11:00am – 12:00pm

Acuff Auditorium (MA217) – School of Medicine

Join us for “Critical role of mitochondrial integrity in Cardiovascular disease" a keynote presentation by School of Medicine – Medical Pharmacology and Physiology, MizzouForward faculty candidate, Dr. Andreas Beyer. Dr. Beyer will present on his research for approximately 40-minutes with a 20-minute question and answer session to follow.


Dr. Andreas Beyer is an Associate Professor of Medicine and Physiology and Co-director of Cardio-Oncology at the Cardiovascular Research Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.   Dr. Beyer earned his Dipl. Of Biochemical Engineering from the University of Applied Science in Giessen-Friedberg, Germany and his Ph.D. in Genetics at the University of Iowa in Iowa City, IA.  Dr. Beyer completed postdoctoral work at Rahmouni Laboratory, University of Iowa and Lombard Laboratory at Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee.


Dr. Beyer’s lab is interested in the role of mitochondrial function and signaling in the microcirculation.  They use reverse translational approaches to understand underlying mechanisms of human disease progression and development.  In specific they focus on how microvascular endothelial dysfunction contributes to end organ damage in the setting of clinical problems ranging from coronary artery disease, heart failure to cardio-oncology.
