WELCOME OUR NEW CLINICAL RESEARCH MANAGER
Margaret Carlson, MPH CPH
Ms. Carlson received her undergraduate degree in Sociology with a minor in Pediatric Research and completed a Master of Public Health program in 2019. She went on to start a Doctorate in Public Health, emphasizing on patient provider communications, at the University of Utah and is pursuing this alongside her professional development. Previously, Ms. Carlson worked as the study coordinator for the Division of Emergency Medicine overseeing 3-4 advanced research associates where she was also the program director for the Research Associate Program conducted in the Emergency Division at the University Hospital.
Margaret is passionate about learning and looks forward to growing clinical research within CT Surgery.
The Dosdall lab, together with an interdisciplinary team including Doug Smego MD from CT surgery, Robin Shaw MD PhD from Cardiovascular Medicine, and Ting Ting Hong PhD from Pharmacology, is developing a large animal ischemic heart failure model for testing novel therapeutic treatment options for patients with heart failure. This model will play an important role in research efforts at the CVRTI in the future. Initial results with a novel cBIN1 gene therapy have been very promising.
