Faculty Bio

The research program of Dr. Stephen Pang is on the structure and function of the cardiovascular system in health and disease. His current research focus is on the design of gene therapies for the treatment of myocardial infarction (MI or heart attack). Using atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) as a cardioprotective molecule, Dr. PangÕs laboratory is designing a new gene construct in order to protect the heart immediately following MI. Collaborations with Drs. Amer Johri (Cardiology), Albert Jin (Neurology), and David Andrew, Dr. PangÕs laboratory is studying the link between abnormal atrial natriuretic peptide expression, heart attack and stroke. Drs. Stephen Waldman (Mechanical Engineering), Davide Bardana (Orthopedic Surgery), James Stewart and Manuela Kunz (Computing), Mark Hurtig (Ontario Veterinary College, Univ. of Guelph), Andrew Winterborn (Health Sciences) and Pang are current working on methods of producing engineered articular cartilage for implantation and joint repair. With the collaborations of Drs. Will King, Janet Ashbury (Epidemiology), Stephen Vanner (GIDRU) and Sherry Taylor (Pathology, Dalhousie Univ.), Yat Tse, the Pang lab has established a method of quantifying LINE-1 DNA methylation and applying it in an epidemiological study to screen colorectal cancer.
