Eugene Konorev, MD, PhD
Associate Professor of Pharmacology
Research Interests: Angiogenesis and Cardiovascular Complications of Anticancer Therapy
By utilizing animal models and cell culture, Dr. Konorev’s research is focused on the prevention of cardiac remodeling and progression of heart failure resulting from cancer chemotherapeutics. His team has made important contributions to the field of angiogenesis or the process of formation of new vascular networks in postnatal tissues. Dr. Konorev has identified targets for the antiangiogenic effect of doxorubicin and therapeutics to alleviate the antiangiogenic effects.
