Zsolt Bagi: Zsolt is an Associate Professor of Medicine at Medical College of Georgia in Augusta, GA and a Senior Research Fellow at Somerville College, in Oxford, UK. Zsolt received his M.D. in 2000 and Ph.D. 2004 from the Semmelweis University Medical School in Hungary. He joined Professor Gabor Kaley at the Department of Physiology, New York Medical College, Valhalla, NY in 2002, where he held an Assistant Professor position (2007-2010) and led a laboratory. Zsolt moved to Oxford in 2010 having been awarded an Intermediate Research Fellowship from the British Heart Foundation Center of Research Excellence and joined the Department of Pharmacology at University of Oxford (2010-2012). Currently, Zsolt leads a research laboratory at Vascular Biology Center, Medical College of Georgia, where his current research is focusing on novel therapeutics of coronary microvascular disease.
Andras Szabo: Andras is a Senior Reseach Scientist in the Vascular Biology Center. He joined the lab from the Department of Pharmacology, University of Oxford. His current research is focusing on angiotensin II receptor trafficking in the microcirculation in health and disease.
Attila Feher: Attila is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Vascular Biology Center. Attila received his M.D. and Ph.D. from the University of Debrecen Medical School in Hungary. He joined the lab from the Institute of Cardiology, Universtiy of Debrecen. His current research is focusing on adipose tissue-derived factors in the development of small coronary artery disease.
Zuzana Broskova: Zuzana is a Postdoctoral Fellow from the Department of Experimental Pharmacology and Toxicology, Slovak Academy of Sciences, Bratislava. Her current research is focusing on mechanisms leading to platelet adhesion in diseased cerebral and coronary microvessels.
James Cassuto: James is an MD/PhD candidate at New York Medical College, Valhalla, New York, and visiting Research Assistant in our laboratory. He graduated with Latin Honors from the University of Rochester in 2008 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Chemistry and a minor in biology. James’ current research projects pertain to functional physiology investigations of endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) uncoupling and platelet endothelial interactions within arterioles in human and animal models of disease respectively. He is also interested and engaged in statistical outcomes research. Outside of the lab, James can be found playing handball, his sax, or home brewing apple cider.
Marta Balogh: Marta is associate member of our Lab. She works under the supervision of Dr Gamesan Ramesh at Vascular Biology Center. Marta is gratuated in 2004 at University of Szent Istvan in Hungary with a Bachelor Degree in eEngineering. Marta's current interest is to investigate morphological alterations in the diseased human heart.
