Research Interests

Dr. Mann’s primary research interest has been the molecular and cellular basis of heart failure, with particular emphasis on the role of innate immunity in heart failure. His laboratory has focused on the basic mechanisms that contribute to left ventricular remodeling and reverse left ventricular remodeling. He has been engaged in translational research for over 2 decades, and has also sought to translate concepts derived in his laboratory into phase I,II,III and IV clinical trials
