    Research Interests: For the last 30 years I have been interested in the synaptic plasticity of the central nervous system as a result of repeated or prolonged nociception and/or repeated or prolonged pain relieving drugs. In the last few years, my research has focused on the mechanisms and neurochemistry of of opiate tolerance, potential therapeutics to help opiate tolerant patients, and studies to minimize the life-threatening risk of opiates in analgesic tolerant patients.

    Research Interest: Dr. Tian has been studying the molecular mechanisms regulating cardiac metabolism and energetics for about 20 years. She is immensely interested in bi-directional translational research between the bench and the bedside. Her research program is built to move from fundamental questions to rigorous evaluation of in vivo metabolism and physiology in cardiovascular diseases. Dr. Tian is building a multi-disciplinary research center on mitochondria and metabolism to focus on the role of mitochondrial dysfunction in a number of complex human diseases associated with aging, such as cardiovascular and neuro-degenerative diseases, obesity and diabetes, and cancer.

    Primary Location: Wang Lab, South Lake Union

    Research Interests: Superoxide flash genesis, effects of superoxide flash on local signaling, and superoxide flash as biomarker for cardiac dysfunction.

    Biographical Summary: Dr. Wang won the 2007 Richard J. Bing Award for Young Investigators of ISHR (International Society for Heart Research), for discovery of the superoxide flash. He has been studying the intrinsic triggers/regulators of physiological mPTP opening and subsequent superoxide flash production. His research program seeks to demonstrate how physiological mPTP activity and ROS production impact local signaling. He works to establish the use of superoxide flash as novel indication of oxidative cardiac disorders, as well as novel criterion to evaluate the effectiveness of anti-oxidant treatments.
