Dr. Charles MurryDr. R. John Solaro, Ph.D.

Head of Physiology and Biophysics and Distinguished University Professor for the University of Illinois at Chicago, Dr. Solaro's research integrates molecular and cellular processes at the level of the sarcomere into mechanisms controlling cardiac dynamics.  His work addresses how sarcomeric function is altered by pathological conditions leading to heart failure, and seminal studies from his laboratory have led to identification and development of small molecule inotropic agents useful in the treatment of heart failure.

Dr. Solaro will speak about "Cardiac Sarcomeres, Genes that Kill Young Adults, and What We Can Do".
