Research Areas

Currently, the Marbán Laboratory is using biologically based therapies for cardiac regeneration and biological pacemakers. All lab members have a specific role in conducting their research that will enable the Marbán Lab to translate their work from the bench to bedside. The research using cardiosphere-derived stem cells (CDCs) has demonstrated cells that are better in their functional repair capacity and in their angiogenic ability to secrete favorable paracrine factors, which other cells currently in clinical use do not. The Marbán Laboratory is now studying various methods of delivering the cells and determining the immunogenicity of allogeneic stem cells in small and large animal models.
