Pronouns: he/they

Dr. Jesse Moreira is an NIH T32 Postdoctoral Fellow in Cardiovascular Medicine at Boston University School of Medicine in the laboratory of Dr. Jessica Fetterman. His current research entails utilizing induced human pluripotent stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes to identify novel biochemical and mitochondrial mechanisms mediating the development and progression of pathological cardiac phenotypes in various forms of heart failure. His current research aims to identify novel therapeutic targets and efficacious drugs in the management of heart failure and mitochondrial disease.

He previously received his Doctor of Philosophy in Human Physiology with Dr. Richard Wainford, studying the neural control of blood pressure and neuroimmune contributions to salt-sensitive hypertension in rats. Before that, he completed his BA magna cum laude at Salem State University in Biology with a minor in Chemistry, with a special interest in medical human physiology and pharmacology and an MS in Human Physiology from Boston University, where his work with Dr. Susan Kandarian encompassed molecular and cell biology, skeletal muscle biology, and signal transduction in vitro in C2C12 cell lines.
