Event Information

Join us for GW Biomedical Cross-disciplinary Seminar Series: Connecting Academic Research & Inquiry Across Disciplines—a series of seminars that explore a new cross-disciplinary topic each year. For the inaugural year, the focus is "Inflammation in Chronic Disease: Cause, Consequence, or Both?" and will address both the treatment and prevention of chronic inflammatory diseases.

This lecture is on "T cells Turn Up the Pressure" with Meenakshi S. Madhur, MD, PhD, FACC, is an assistant professor, Department of Medicine, Divisions of Clinical Pharmacology and Cardiology; assistant professor, Department of Molecular Physiology and Biophysics; and associate director of the Vanderbilt Institute for Infection, Immunology and Inflammation at the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine. Dr. Madhur's clinical interest areas are general cardiology and hypertension, and research interest is in inflammation in hypertension and aortic dissection. She studies the role of T cells and T cell-derived cytokines in hypertension and renal/vascular dysfunction.

The seminar series is supported by departmental funding and the generosity of Ellen J. LaBelle, MD `74, associate clinical professor of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, and John Pan, MD, clinical professor, Department of Clinical Research and Leadership, and founding medical director, Office of Integrative Medicine and Health.
