    Research

    The current research areas of Eduardo Marbán, MD, PhD, are using biologically based therapies for cardiac regeneration and biological pacemakers. Each lab members has a specific role in conducting research that will enable the Marbán Lab to translate its work from the bench to bedside. The research using cardiosphere-derived cells has demonstrated that the cells are better in their functional repair capacity and in their angiogenic ability to secrete favorable paracrine factors that other cells in clinical use do not. The lab is studying various methods of delivering the cells and determining the immunogenicity of allogeneic stem cells in small and large animal models.
