THE SIMON LAB
FROM MOLECULES TO MEDICINE
The Simon lab is a team of researchers at Temple University's School of Medicine dedicated to understanding how the heart's redox environment shapes intracellular signaling & function in both health and disease. We leverage the latest innovations in biosensor development, cellular imaging, proteomics and biochemistry to tackle these fundamental questions in biology, and combine our studies with work in animal models and human cells/tissues to address disease relevance.
Fundamental biology + translational insight = impact
Projects in our lab explore how stress-induced changes in the redox environment promote downstream effects more far-reaching than previously thought, and why this matters for cardiac adaptation and survival.
Promoting innovation & translation
We use a breadth of cutting-edge tools and techniques to answer important questions related to redox biology, cell signaling and cardiovascular disease. Of highest priority to us is the generation of data that is both robust and highly reproducible.
The next generation of translational scientists
We recognize the value of diversity in driving innovation and discovery, and strive to foster an inclusive environment for all researchers within our lab. Our team is rapidly growing and currently looking for driven, enthusiastic scientists at any level - could that be you?
