Greer-Short awarded 2 year fellowship from American Heart Association

Amara Greer-Short, post-doc under Dr. Thomas Hund, Professor Biomedical Engineering (BME), was awarded the 2017 Postdoctoral Fellowship by the American Heart Association. This award covers two years and aids Greer-Short and Hund in their research focusing on the role that dysregulated ion currents have in heart remodeling and arrhythmogenesis. In particular, their research focuses on the mechanisms that lead to heart disease, and which potential treatments could prevent that disease. 

Greer-Short completed her BS in BME at Washington State University and her PhD in BME at Virginia Tech. She came to Ohio State University to work in a collaborative scientific environment that focuses on cardiac remodeling and electrophysiology. The Dorothy M. Davis Heart & Lung Research Institute (DHLRI) is a distinguished institute with many amazing scientists who are dedicated to discovering new treatments for heart failure and arrhythmias. Greer-Short has been working with Dr. Hund for one year.

Congratulations Amara Greer-Short!
