5035-Allen, Matthew
Allen Lab
The Allen Laboratory (Indianapolis) is studying the tissue-level mechanisms responsible for musculoskeletal integrity in health and disease by utilizing numerous in vivo model systems that help investigators understand how disease and pharmaceutical intervention influence bone structure, cellular activity, tissue-level properties, and biomechanical properties.

4906-Field, Loren
Field Lab
The Field Lab (Indianapolis) focuses on regenerative growth of the heart. The lab works to develop strategies to monitor the intrinsic rates of cardiomyocyte cell cycle renewal in normal and injured adult hearts, as well as strategies to induce regenerative growth following myocardial injury.

Principal Investigator Loren J. Field, PhD

Phone (317) 274-5085

906-Kaplan, Mark
Kaplan Lab
The Kaplan Laboratory (Indianapolis) focuses on transcription factors that are involved in the development of T helper cell subsets and how those cells contribute to inflammation in allergic and autoimmune diseases.

Principal Investigator Mark H. Kaplan, PhD

Phone (317) 278-3696

43794-Kim, Il-Man
Kim Lab
The Kim Lab (Indianapolis) investigates genetic regulation and signaling pathways in cardiac disease using state-of-the-art cell approaches and mouse model systems. The lab is particularly interested in transcriptional regulation and noncoding RNA regulatory network by seven-transmembrane receptor (also known as G protein-coupled receptor)-mediated signaling pathways in heart failure.

1931-White, Kenneth
White Lab
The laboratory of Kenneth White, PhD, (Indianapolis) is studying the molecular genetics of metabolic bone diseases involving the osteocyte-derived hormone fibroblast growth factor-23 (FGF23). Mutations in FGF23 are responsible for the human phosphate wasting disorder autosomal dominant hypophosphatemic rickets (ADHR) and the converse disorder hyperphosphatemic familial tumoral calcinosis (hfTC). Studies in animal models and in cells are underway to elicit the...
