Dr. Bruno’s Translational Cardio-Immunology Research Laboratory engages in five primary research focus areas:

  • Identifying novel immunomechanisms contributing to myocarditis, dilated cardiomyopathy and heart failure utilizing new animal models of disease
  • Understanding how sex and age differences contribute to mechanisms of diseases
  • Identifying biomarkers and therapies that improve the diagnosis and treatment of cardiac conditions
  • Studying how chemotherapy drugs can cause heart failure and find tools to predict and prevent it
  • Utilize patient samples and data to confirm findings in mouse and cell culture models, emulating “Bench to Bedside”
