William T. Pu, MD
Harvard Medical School
Goals of Dr. Pu's research include:
1. To understand the transcriptional network regulating heart development and disease
2. To understand cell lineage specification in heart development and regeneration
3. To understand genetic contributions to congenital heart disease.
The Pu lab is interested in the regulation of gene expression and cell lineage specification in heart development, disease, and regeneration. Major technologies employed include: genetically engineered mice, conditional gene inactivation, genome-wide chromatin occupancy analysis, and RNA expression profiling.
Dr. Pu received an MD from Harvard Medical School. He completed his internship, residence, and pediatric cardiology training at Children's Hospital Boston.
