Biography:   Dr. Mark Yeager is a staff cardiologist and Chairman of the Molecular Physiology and Biological Physics Department at The University of Virginia.  Dr. Mark Yeager received his undergraduate degree in chemistry from Carnegie-Mellon University, an M.Phil. and a Ph.D. degree from the Department of Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry at Yale University and his medical degree from Yale University School of Medicine, where he was elected to Alpha Omega Alpha. His medicine residency, chief residency and specialty training in cardiology were performed at Stanford University Medical Center.

In addition to support from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and philanthropic grants, Mark Yeager's contributions to biomedical research have been recognized with a Clinical Investigator Award from the NIH, an Established Investigator Award from the American Heart Association and a Clinical Scientist Award in Translational Research from the Burroughs Welcome Fund. Dr. Yeager directs a basic research laboratory examining the structure of macromolecular complexes such as gap junction membrane channels and integrin receptors. Cardiac gap junctions electrically couple adjacent myocardial cells and thereby regulate normal conduction that coordinates the beat-to-beat contraction of the heart but also arrhythmias such as ventricular tachycardia and fibrillation, responsible for more than 250,000 deaths each year. Integrin receptors allow platelets to adhere to one another and participate in normal blood coagulation as well as clots that obstruct blood flow during myocardial infarction. The aim of this work is to gain a deeper understanding of these processes that could lead to new insights for the design of more effective medicines to treat arrhythmias and heart attacks.
