"The present problems we face cannot be solved
by the level of thinking that created them".....Albert Einstein
The members of
the Engelhardt Lab at the University of Iowa Department of Anatomy & Cell Biology welcome you to our web site.We are a diverse group
from the far corners of the world, gathered here among the corn fields
of Iowa to learn, teach and perform research. You will learn as you
journey through our pages that our research, though wide-ranging,
is centered on developing approaches for gene therapy of human diseases.
Our research spans genetic and metabolic diseases from cystic fibrosis,
organ transplantation and sepsis, to cardiac ischemia. We invite you
to explore these pages to learn more about gene therapy and about
us as individuals. Along the way we hope you will learn to share
our excitement about this field of research.
