Steven awarded an American Heart Association Predoctoral Fellowship

Steven was awarded an American Heart Association (AHA) Predoctoral Fellowship this May for his collaborative research between the Columbus and Isakson laboratories. AHA funds research related to cardiovascular function and disease and stroke, or to related clinical, basic science, bioengineering or biotechnology, and public health problems. Steven aims to investigate the molecular basis for the regulation of eNOS function by alpha globin and the physiological impact this interaction has on blood pressure regulation.
