Robert Mankowski, Ph.D. awarded AHA Fellowship

Cogratulations to Dr. Robert Mankowski, for being awarded the American Heart Association Postdoctoral Fellowship. This fellowship will support his research on how resveratrol (phenol present in red grapes, wine and peanuts) can improve heart muscle function and ability of arteries to dilate in response to an increase in blood flow in adults 65 years of age and older. Additionally, his research projects focuses on how resveratrol can improve functioning of cells (cellular house-keeping) which can be related to cardiovascular function.
