Muralidhar Padala


 

Biography:

An engineer by training, Dr. Padala is currently focused on studying the biomechanics and mechanobiology of heart valve disease and heart failure. He received his BS in mechanical engineering from Osmania University in India in 2004, and an MS in mechanical engineering and PhD in bioengineering from Georgia Tech in 2010. Since joining Emory and establishing his independent laboratory in 2010, his focus has been on studying in-vivo heart valve and cardiac mechanics in pre-clinical models. In 2012, he spent one year at Imperial College London on a Leducq Fondation Career Development Award. He trained under Prof. Sir. Magdi Yacoub, a pioneer in cardiac transplantation and heart valve tissue engineering.

Research Areas:

Research Interests:

My laboratory is interested in the pathogenesis of heart valve disease and its impact on the onset and progression of heart failure. We use rodent and swine models of heart valve regurgitation, to understand the changes in the myocardial remodeling at multiple scales. Our recent work is also focused on linking functional changes in the myocardium to detectable genomic, transcriptomic, proteomic, and metabolomic changes, and investigate the potential of using their relationship for early detection of heart failure. Some of our work also involves developing new medical devices and technologies to repair heart valves and associated heart failure.
