KabbIn support of her upcoming sabbatical, Dr. Maureen Knabb has been awarded a prestigious and highly competitive Fullbright Grant. The Fulbright grant will allow Dr. Knabb to perform basic research in cardiovascular physiology in collaboration with Dr. Rafael Rubio, Professor in the Department of Molecular and Integrative Biomedicine, Universidad Autónoma of San Luis Potosi (UASLP), San Luis Potosi, Mexico.

These collaborative efforts will allow her to apply her expertise in adhesion proteins to mechanistic studies of flow-induced changes in heart excitability and contractile force. In addition, Dr. Knabb plans to teach a graduate course in integrative biomedicine entitled “Molecular mechanisms of aging and disease”. This course will introduce the students to active learning through the case study method and serve to strengthen students’ English writing skills.
