Goss Lab

Kara Goss, MD

Dr. Kara Goss research is focused on the long term effects of prematurity and postnatal oxygen exposure on the cardiopulmonary unit, with a specific interest in the acute and chronic adaptive responses of the right ventricle and pulmonary vasculature following prematurity. We are currently utilizing a mixture of physiologic assessments in humans and animal models of disease to better understand the effects of postnatal hyperoxia on the right ventricle and pulmonary vasculature, as well as studying the short and long term cellular level metabolic and mitochondrial adaptations that follow postnatal hyperoxia exposure.

Dr. Goss is funded by a KL2 Program Scholar Award from the UW Institute for Clinical and Translational Research, and by a Barst Award from the Pulmonary Hypertension Association.
