Foster Lab 2016 Year-in-Review Part I: The Book

Yikes, it’s been a while since the last update. As we begin 2017, this is a good time to reflect on the year that was. A source of pride in 2016 was the publication of the book Manual of Cardiovascular Proteomics, which I co-edited with Dr. Giulio Agnetti Assistant Professor of Medicine and Director of […]

Foster Lab 2016 Year-in-Review Part II: The Paper

In September 2016 we published the big one. I am referring to our paper: Integrated Omic Analysis of a Guinea Pig Model of Heart Failure and Sudden Cardiac Death. J Proteome Res. 2016 Sep 2;15(9):3009-28. doi: 10.1021/acs.jproteome.6b00149. PMID: 27399916 in which we examined the transcriptome, proteome and metabolome of heart failure progression in a modified […]
