Loren E. Wold
Dr. Loren Wold’s area of research is focused on external triggers of cardiovascular disease, with special emphasis on the role of cancer cachexia and air pollution. Both projects are NIH R01 funded and investigate how the cardiovascular system is affected by these stressors. State-of-the art in vivo and in vitro technologies are utilized to investigate how the heart responds to these stressors, and attempts are made to treat with novel pharmacological agents. Dr. Wold is also very involved in training undergraduates, graduate students, medical students and postdoctoral fellows in basic lab techniques, as well as tools for effective manuscript and grant writing.
A team of researchers from Ohio State University’s College of Nursing recently received a $1.6 million federal grant to try to reduce the chances of young, Black adults getting heart disease.
Researchers from Vanderbilt University and The Ohio State University are teaming up to develop next-generation robotic technology that can help older adults living with forms of dementia through a grant from the National Institute on Aging (NIA) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
