Fan Fan, M.D., M.S., FAHA, is an Associate Professor (with tenure) in the Department of Physiology at the Medical College of Georgia, Augusta University. Her lab uses multidisciplinary approaches with an array of techniques to investigate the genetic-based microvascular dysfunction in aging, hypertension, diabetes, and obesity, and its contribution to end-organ damage, including vascular cognitive impairment, Alzheimer's disease, Alzheimer's disease-related dementias, and renal disease. The lab's research also focuses on studying the contribution of changes in the actin cytoskeleton in vascular cells to the hemodynamics in cerebral and renal circulation, as well as changes in the actin cytoskeleton in podocytes in glomerular function. Recent findings from the lab reveal that inhibition of sodium-glucose co-transporter 2 and soluble epoxide hydrolase can reverse impaired cerebral hemodynamics and cognitive deficits. Dr. Fan's work is funded by the National Institute on Aging and the American Heart Association.
