The P.I.

Prof. Gaetano Santulli, MD, PhD, FAHA

Department of Medicine (Cardiology)
Department of Molecular Pharmacology

The Santulli's lab studies the functional role of intracellular calcium and non-coding RNAs in the pathophysiology of cardiovascular and metabolic disorders.


During his training at Columbia University Medical Center, Prof. Santulli elucidated the fundamental mechanisms underlying the key role of calcium channels in heart failure and diabetes, both in patients and in murine models of cardiovascular and metabolic diseases. 

The lab is currently funded by the NIH [5 R01s, 2 as Principal Investigator (NHLBI and NIDDK), 3 as Co-Investigator (NHLBI and NIDDK), 2 T32 (NHLBI)], by the Hirschl/Weill Trust (2021-2025), by the Diabetes Action Research Foundation, by the Waxman Foundation, and by the American Heart Association (AHA).
