After receiving my Ph.D. from West Virginia University School of Medicine in the Laboratory of Jefferson Frisbee, Ph.D., I accepted a post-doctoral position at the Indiana University School of Medicine in the Laboratory of Johnathan Tune, Ph.D. I remained at Indiana University for about the next 10 years, rising to the position of Assistant Clinical Professor of Anatomy, Cell Biology & Physiology and Director of the Pre-Professional M.S. Program within that department.

In 2021, my family and I relocated to Northeast Ohio , where my wife and I accepted positions.

I highly value the process of training and mentorship and would strongly encourage any learner at any level who has taken the time to read this biography to make free use of my contact information with questions they have regarding science, medical education or the NEOMED experience.

Research interests

Research in the Goodwill Laboratory focuses on the interplay between myocardial contractile function and delivery of oxygen/nutrients via coronary bloodflow.

Overall, the Goodwill Laboratory has a goal of improving our understanding of the key regulators that link oxygen demand with delivery while also exploring how this delicate balance can become disrupted. Our laboratory employs a top-down approach beginning at the level of dysfunction and investigating which dysregulated mediators may be responsible for the imbalances associated with cardiac pathologies.

Studies routinely begin with in vivo and progress to the molecular with the goal therapeutic targets for the treatment of cardiovascular disease.
