He is a member of the American Society for Clinical Investigation and Association of University Cardiologists. Dr. MacLellan is a prominent investigator in cardiovascular regenerative medicine and directs the Center for Cardiovascular Biology…


Chuck Murry

Dr. Charles Murry is a professor of Pathology, Bioengineering and Medicine/Cardiology at the University of Washington in Seattle, where he also serves as the Director of the Center for Cardiovascular Biology, Director of the Heart Regeneration Program, and Interim Director of the Institute for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine. He received his BS in Chemistry…


Anna Naumova

Dr. Naumova is interested in use of non-invasive imaging and magnetic resonance spectroscopy to study structural, functional and metabolic regeneration of the injured heart after transplantation of human stem cell derived cardiomyocytes. Dr. Naumova’s research is focused on developing novel genetically-encoded markers to enable multimodality imaging of live cells (MRI, bioluminescence, fluorescence, and positron emission…


Mike Regnier

Dr.  Michael Regnier is Washington Research Foundation Endowed Professor and Vice-Chair for Research in the Department of Bioengineering at the University of Washington (UW). He is an Adjunct Professor of Physiology and Biophysics at UW and an Affiliate Investigator of the Benaroya Research Institute in Seattle, WA. Dr. Regnier received his Ph.D. in Neurobiology from…


Marta Scatena

Dr. Scatena is currently a Research Associate Professor in the Department of Bioengineering. In her laboratory, studies are aimed at understanding the mechanisms underlying the pathological processes of cardiovascular diseases. In particular they are interested in the control and regulation of endothelial cells function and angiogenesis, and the control of inflammation. It is well recognized…


Shin Lin

Shin Lin, M.D., Ph.D., M.H.S., is an Assistant Professor in Medicine and an attending in the Advanced Heart Failure-Transplant-MCS Section of the Division of Cardiology at UWMC.  His research focuses on the epigenomics of heart failure. Dr. Lin’s lab seeks to apply modern techniques elucidating regulatory elements and protein products on a global scale and analyze these data to understand the…


Nathan Sniadecki

Dr. Nathan Sniadecki’s research is in the areas of cell biomechanics, bioMEMs, and bioinstrumentation. Specifically, his lab is developing micro- and nano-scale tools to understand the mechanical properties of cells. His lab uses arrays of flexible silicone posts to measure the traction forces of cells, computational modeling to examine cell mechanics, and microfluidic devices to investigate…


April Stempien-Otero

Dr. Stempien-Otero is the Craig Tall Family Endowed Professor in Heart Failure Research and a UW associate professor of medicine.As a practicing heart failure transplant cardiologist who has participated in multicenter clinical trials and undergone substantial additional training in basic science research, Dr. Stempien-Otero has developed the skills to bring bench to bedside studies to…


Kelly Stevens

Dr. Stevens’ research focuses on fabricating engineered tissue systems to understand and treat global heart and liver disease. Her lab is developing new technologies to assemble synthetic human tissues from stem cells, and to remotely control these tissues after implantation in a patient. She is also working to develop micro patterning and bioprinting techniques to create pre-patterned…


Gale Tang

Dr. Tang is an associate professor of vascular surgery at the University of Washington. Her clinical interests include endovascular and open surgical therapies for thoracic and abdominal aortic disease, carotid disease and lower extremity arterial disease. Dr. Tang’s area of research is in the cellular and molecular mechanisms of collateral artery development and non-operative therapies for…
