NSF Award Search: Award#1263572 - Collaborative Research: Advancing the Diagnosis and Quantification of Mitral Valve Regurgitation with Mathematical Modeling Award Abstract #1263572 Collaborative Research: Advancing the Diagnosis and Quantification of Mitral Valve Regurgitation with Mathematical Modeling Mitral regurgitation (MR) is a valvular disease in which the mitral valve does not close properly, thereby allowing blood to flow backward from the left ventricle to the left atrium of the heart. This is an exciting, new study, addressing a significant problem in the development of non-invasive diagnostic tools for the quantification of valvular regurgitation.

NSF Award Search: Advanced Search Results. NSF Award Search: Award#1436173 - Endothelial to Mesenchymal Transformation Mechanobiology Award Abstract #1436173 Endothelial to Mesenchymal Transformation Mechanobiology A developing heart valve, the generation of fibrotic heart tissue, and the formation of calcified aortic valve nodules all share a common component - activated fibroblasts. One source of activated fibroblasts is endothelial to mesenchymal transformation (EndMT), which is the differentiation of mature endothelial cells into mesenchymal cells. EndMT has been observed in human valves near calcified nodules, and factors present in aortic valve disease including inflammatory cytokines, pathological cyclic strain, and altered shear stress have individually been shown to induce cell transformation in adult aortic valve endothelial cells.
