About Us

Our laboratory opened its doors in June 2006 at Emory University as part of the joint Biomedical Engineering program at Emory University School of Medicine and Georgia Institute of Technology. Dr. Davis is an associate professor in both the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering and the Division of Cardiology at Emory University School of Medicine.


Currently, the only major treatment for heart failure is transplantation. However, it is estimated that less than 30% of patients survive to receive their new hearts. The local cell death following myocardial infarction plays a major role in the progression of cardiac dysfunction. Our laboratory focuses on various aspects of cardiac regeneration and preservation using molecular-based and biomaterials-based approaches to restoring function after cardiac injury.
