Haiyang Tang, PhD
Paper: Pathogenic Role of mTORC1 and mTORC2 in Pulmonary Hypertension
Dr. Haiyang Tang currently is a research assistant professor working in the Division of Translational and Regenerative Medicine, Department of Medicine, The University of Arizona. Dr. Tang’s research interests include pathogenic mechanisms of idiopathic and hypoxic pulmonary hypertension, cellular and molecular mechanisms of hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction and pulmonary vascular pathophysiology. He has diligently and successfully developed animal models of pulmonary hypertension, as well as successfully established state-of-the-art approaches for the study of pulmonary hypertension, including right ventricular pressure measurements using the Millar system and hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction measurements by isolated/ventilated and perfuse lung system.
