Physiology faculty welcome Lindsey

LindseyDr. Merry L. Lindsey, a cardiac researcher with interest in multidimensional approaches to examine the mechanisms whereby the left ventricle responds to injury, has joined the Medical Center faculty as a professor of physiology and biophysics.

After receiving a B.A. in biology from Boston University, Lindsey earned a Ph.D. in cardiovascular sciences at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas, and was a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, Mass.

Lindsey joined the faculty at the Medical University of South Carolina, where she served as an assistant professor from 2002-05. In 2005, she moved to the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, where she was promoted to full professor in 2012.

The coauthor of more than 85 articles in peer-reviewed journals and eight book chapters, Lindsey is principal investigator or co-investigator of four ongoing research projects, three of which are funded by the National Institutes of Health. She is the director of the San Antonio Cardiovascular Proteomics Center, which is one of seven proteomics centers funded by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute.

She is an active member of the American Physiological Society, the American Heart Association and the American Association for the Advancement of Science, among other professional organizations. She has served as a journal reviewer or editor for more than 50 journals and has reviewed grants for more than 10 funding agencies, including the National Institutes of Health, the American Heart Association and numerous international agencies.

Lindsey comes to UMMC to promote translational heart research, focused on studies that span from bench to bedside.
