Raymond Runyan, PhD, is a principal investigator on NIH grant R01HL124782-01, studying microfabricated coculture model: myocyte rescue by TNT-transferred mitochondria. The research team is looking at the transfer of mitochondria from stem cells into myocytes and the effects that donated mitochondria have on heart cell function.

Other projects in his laboratory explore the signals that mediate the early steps of valve formation in the embryonic heart and the roles of environmental agents such as trichloroethlene and arsenic as causes of congenital heart disease.
