Graduate Student Receives American Medical Association (AMA) Foundation Seed Grant

Congratulations to Laura Tetri, graduate student in the lab of Dr. Marlowe Eldridge, who was recently awarded a 2015 Seed Grant in the amount of $2,500 from the American Medical Association (AMA) Foundation. In her project, "Role of adrenergic signaling in regulation of blood flow through pulmonary supernumerary arteries," she will study the structure and function of supernumerary arteries to better understand their function on normal physiology and disease states. Increased understanding of the normal physiologic function and regulation of supernumerary arteries will allow further study of their role in the pathophysiology of diseases such as pulmonary arterial hypertension.
