Tom Daniel is among a team of University of Washington researchers awarded the American Heart Association's Collaborative Science Award.
The collaborative grant, titled Multi-Scale Computational Modeling in Genetic Cardiomyopathies, brings together three complementary areas of expertise: molecular cardiovascular biology, cardiac physiology and muscle mechanics, and computational biology. The research effort will be co-led by Jen Davis PhD, Associate Professor of Lab Medicine and Pathology and Bioengineering; Farid Moussavi-Harami MD, Assistant Professor of Medicine/Cardiology; and Tom Daniel PhD, Professor of Biology.
Davis and Moussavi-Harami are faculty members in the Institute for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine (ISCRM). Daniel leads the Quantitative Analysis Core in the UW Center for Translational Muscle Research (CTMR), which is supporting the research effort through a pilot grant.
“We are incredibly excited to bring computational modeling and machine learning to address issues that encompass both skeletal and cardiac myopathies,” says Daniel. ” Through the CTMR, we are able to collaborate with a team of outstanding clinical and basic research scientists.”
Congratulations, Tom and team!
