Title 2: 
Marcus Chair in Vascular Medicine
Title 3: 
Professor of Medicine and Biomedical Engineering
Research Interests: 

Dr. Taylor’s laboratory is focused on obtaining a better understanding of the role of vascular inflammation in the pathogenesis of vascular disease. His work employs novel animal models of human vascular disease to study the role of various mechanical and humoral factors in the development of hypertension and atherosclerosis. He has a particular interest in the renin angiotensin system, advanced glycation endproducts, biomechanical forces and oxidative stress. A significant effort is also underway to examine the interaction between vascular inflammation and bone marrow-derived endothelial progenitor cells. Dr. Taylor’s research program involves strong collaborative efforts with other members of the Department of Biomedical Engineering with a focus on applying enabling nanotechnology and imaging approaches to the general area of atherosclerosis.
