See a current list of publications from the Gottlieb Laboratory.
The publications cover several topics: autophagy/mitophagy (Gottlieb Lab), cardioprotection (collaboration with Robert Mentzer Jr., MD of Wayne State University); and investigations into the microbial basis of heart disease. The microbial work involves collaborations with Ralph Feuer (coxsackievirus), Scott Kelley (oral microbiome), Kelly Doran (gram-positive bacteria) and Patricia Romano (Trypanosoma cruzi).
