The Scherrer-Crosbie laboratory interest is to further the understanding of heart failure development and progression in animal models and in humans. The interest in subclinical heart failure has led the team to explore two populations of interest, patients with cancer and patients with metabolic abnormalities. Dr. Scherrer-Crosbie is the Director of the Echocardiography Laboratory at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and the Director of the Mouse Echocardiography Core Laboratory in the Cardiovascular Institute. As such, she promotes the use of echocardiography, a crucial tool that allows to link signaling pathways to the organ level, and apply basic research findings to clinical research.
