Dr. Olan Jackson-Weaver joined our Department of Surgery in September 2018 as a Research Assistant Professor in the Division of Trauma and Acute Care Education. He was born and raised in Albuquerqe, New Mexico. After completing his Bachelors degrees in Chemistry and Biology and his Ph.D. in Biomedical Sciences (vascular physiology focus) from the University of New Mexico, He received postdoctoral training at the University of California Los Angeles and the University of Southern California studying astrocyte calcium signaling and the roles of protein arginine methylation in heart development and disease. His lab at Tulane University studies several aspects of endothelial cell biology, including endothelial cell damage during shock and trauma and the role of Ca2+ signaling modalities in the regulation of angiogenesis.
