CardiOmics Program

Director: Rebekah Gundry, PhD Rebekah Gundry
Manager: Melinda Wojtkiewicz melinda.jpg
Mission: To catalyze state-of-the-art interdisciplinary cardiovascular research, foster technology development, provide education regarding the applications of mass spectrometry in modern cardiovascular research, and drive the generation of new knowledge that will impact cardiovascular medicine and patient care.

The CardiOmics program develops and applies advanced mass spectrometry technologies to enable deeper understanding of mechanisms of injury and disease, provide better diagnostic and prognostic tools, and promote the translationl of basic resarch into improved clinical care. 

We develop and deploy highly specialized targeted and discovery-based assays.

Operational Model: The Program operates as a collaborative model where we work together with Investigators in the CHVR and across UNMC. We contribute scientific input to the design, execution, and analysis of all projects we engage in to ensure that the approaches best suited to each individual project are developed and implemented. For those who are interested in routine mass spectrometry services, we refer you to the UNMC Mass Spectrometry and Proteomics Core Facility.
