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.
