Dr. Krzywanski’s research focuses on the role that the mitochondria plays in the initiation and progression of cardiovascular disease (CVD); specifically atherosclerosis and hypertension.  Of particular interest is how normal variation in mitochondrial function may contribute to increased prevalence of CVD among specific ethnic groups.
