Sharma Delivers Lecture on Heart Failure
During her lecture entitled, “Molecular Regulation of Neuronal Nitric Oxide Synthase in the Paraventricular Nucleus: Implications for Sympathoexcitatory States,” Sharma spoke about the impact of cardiovascular disease.
“Cardiovascular disease is the leading global cause of death. At least 17.3 million deaths are caused each year and that number is expected to grow to 23.6 million by 2030,” said Sharma. “It is also the number one killer of women. More women die of heart failure than all cancer combined.”
Sharma’s research investigates the imbalance of nitric oxide and its effect on cardiovascular output. Sharma hopes understanding this imbalance will help medical researchers develop new treatments for cardiovascular disease.
“We need more therapies, more basic research to find causes and ways to treat this disease,” said Sharma.
Sharma is an assistant professor in the cellular and integrative physiology department at the University of Nebraska Medical Center.
