Cardiovascular Pharmacology Research

The goals and objectives of this course are to study the mechanisms that regulate tone in the pulmonary vascular bed, examine how pharmacologic agents alter this regulation, and to separate the cardiac and pulmonary vascular effects of these agents.
The course consists of supervised laboratory research, collection of data, writing of abstracts for professional meetings and papers for journals. No formal examinations.
Evaluation will be on performance and acquired knowledge during the course of experiments. Students will be assessed via quality of final written research report and performance in research lab.
