CFReT News & Activities

​​Please join us in welcoming CFReT's newest faculty, 

Dr. Maggie Lam, Ph.D. 

Maggie's work focuses on cardiovascular proteomics and bioinformatics.  Her recent work at UCLA led to the development of a number of mass spectrometry and computational methods aimed at understanding the expression and regulation of proteins in murine and human hearts. ​Maggie will leverage this expertise to discover new mechanisms for fibrosis regulation across organ systems.
