Lisandro Maya Ramos is investigating how adipose-tissue-derived signals affect cardiovascular pathophysiology. Maya Ramos, a scientist and cardiology fellow, plans to unravel how endotrophin, a peptide originating in adipose tissue, drives heart failure with preserved ejection fraction, a type of heart failure associated with ventricular stiffness. His results could unravel novel mechanisms underlying adipose tissue signaling to the heart as well as potential new therapies for heart failure.
