Jillian McCullough, PhD Awarded 5 month Pilot Project

Jillian McCullough, PhD, was awarded a 5 month pilot project with the CardioPulmonary Vascular Biology COBRE at the Ocean State Research Institute. McCullough is completing her Postdoctoral training in Pulmonary Hypertension at the Vascular Research Laboratory at Alpert Medical School of Brown University and Providence VA Medical Center. Her pilot project is entitled “Peripheral Blood Flow and Exercise Intolerance in Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension.” The goal of the proposed research grant is to elucidate the role of the peripheral microvasculature as a potential contributor to exercise intolerance in pulmonary arterial hypertension.
