Current Research

Liam Stewart aims to demonstrate the presence of a sympathetically-mediated cardio-inotropic limb to the arterial baroreflex by performing informative integrative physiological studies in rodents. His research will provide key insights illustrating how the heart mounts the necessary inotropic response to maintain blood pressure homeostasis during physiological stress. He hopes that his research can used to develop more targeted therapeutics to treat cardiovascular dysfunction.
