Overview

Dr. Del Re earned his Ph.D. from the University of California, San Diego. There he trained under Dr. Joan Heller Brown, Chair of
the Department of Pharmacology, investigating the role of the small G-protein RhoA in modulating cardiomyocyte growth and
survival in the context of cardiac ischemic injury.

Dr. Del Re then completed his postdoctoral training in the lab of Dr. Junichi Sadoshima, Chair of Cell Biology and Molecular
Medicine at Rutgers, New Jersey Medical School. As a postdoctoral fellow, Dr. Del Re investigated the role of the Hippo
signaling pathway in the development of heart failure, with a specific focus on upstream regulation of key Hippo pathway
components during myocardial stress.

As Assistant Professor at Rutgers, New Jersey Medical School, Dr. Del Re is interested in elucidating novel signaling pathways
that mediate heart injury, remodeling, and failure following ischemic stress. Projects in the lab focus on Hippo signaling in multiple cardiac cell
types, with the goal of better understanding how the heart responds to stress.
