David J. Pinsky MD Endowed Professor of Cardiovascular Medicine
Associate Professor, Cardiovascular Medicine, Department of Internal Medicine, and Department of Human Genetics, University of Michigan
Director, Michigan Biological Research Initiative on Sex Differences
Dr. Ganesh studies the genetic and molecular basis of vascular diseases. She completed undergraduate and medical school at Northwestern University, after which she trained in Internal Medicine at the University of Michigan and Cardiovascular Medicine at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. She completed her postdoctoral fellowships at the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, National Human Genome Research Institute, and Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, Institute of Genetic Medicine.
Her laboratory employs genetic and genomic analysis methods to identify and study genetic mechanisms of arterial dysplasia in diseases such as fibromuscular dysplasia, renovascular hypertension, arterial aneurysm, and arterial dissections. These efforts have led to the identification of new biologic mechanisms of arterial dysplasia and related abnormal arterial remodeling, as well as novel clinically actionable genetic findings. Her lab has had continuous extramural funding, including NIH, DOD, Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and others, and she has over 100 peer reviewed manuscripts.
