Donna Korzick

Director of Graduate Training Initiatives; Chair, Intercollege Graduate Degree Program in Integrative and Biomedical Physiology; Professor of Physiology and Kinesiology
My research is focused on aging, post-menopausal women, and cardiac ischemia reperfusion injury using animal models. We are particularly interested in the effects of estrogen deficiency on mitochondrial regulation of cell survival following myocardial infarction. Multiple levels of inquiry addressing mitochondrial quality control regulation and immune signaling is emphasized.
