Roberta Gottlieb, MD

Director, Molecular Cardiobiology

Dorothy and E. Phillip Lyon Chair in Molecular Cardiology in honor of Clarence M. Agress MD

Research Scientist, Heart Institute

The research of Roberta Gottlieb, MD, focuses on myocardial ischemia and cardioprotection. Her focus is on mitochondria and autophagy, using biochemistry, microscopy, and molecular physiology tools in cell, rodent, and porcine models to understand and mitigate ischemic injury with a goal of developing therapeutics for use in humans.
