Stem cells and Cardiac regeneration
My lab research focuses on cardiac regeneration and on the role of
adult cardiac stem cells in the healthy and injured heart.

Our main goal is to unravel paracrine signals that can enhance cardiac
regeneration after injury. Therefore, we are using modified mRNA as a novel
gene delivery tool to locally up-regulate or down-regulate paracrine factors
after myocardial infarction in small and large animal models.

Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device, biotechnology companies, and other outside entities to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their outside financial relationships.

Dr. Zangi has not yet completed reporting of Industry relationships.

Mount Sinai's faculty policies relating to faculty collaboration with industry are posted on our website. Patients may wish to ask their physician about the activities they perform for companies.
