Cardiac electrophysiology: Cardiac Electrophysiology is the science of the mechanisms, functions, and performance of the electrical activities of specific regions of the heart. Dr. Anderson's specific clinical interests include understanding the aspects and contributing factors involved in atrial and ventricular arrhythmias, as well as in atherosclerosis and ischemic cardiomyopathy. Such arrhythmias are conditions in which the electrical activity of the heart is irregular, is faster or slower than normal and can be life threatening.
Molecular and cellular immunology is the foundation of Dr. Anderson's research. Dr. Anderson has a specific focus and interest in innate immunity (preexisting immunity) and how such immune responses contribute to the mechanisms of cardiovascular disease processes. His studies have specifically focused on underlying mechanisms of viral myocarditis, atherosclerotic disease and the impact inflammation has on cardiac rhythm abnormalities. Recent studies have detailed the role of inflammation in arrhythmogenesis and atherosclerosis. Dr. Anderson has also detailed the utility of microbubble technology in the detection and monitoring of vascular inflammation.
American Heart Association - National Scientist Development Grant: 2007-2010
Title: Detection and Modulation of Vascular Inflammatory Events
The major goals of this research study were to evaluate the mechanisms of microbubble binding to injured endothelium, and the ability to non-invasively detect, image and monitor injured, inflamed, and dysfunctional endothelium.
American Heart Association - Grant-in-Aid: 2012 - 2014
Title: Protein Modification: Immune Sensitization, Cytotoxicity and Cardiovascular Disease
The major goal of this research study is to evaluate the innate immunology of vascular injury and specifically the impact of modified proteins in the development, progression, and prediction of atherosclerotic disease.
