    Collapse overview
    Leonard M. Anderson Ph.D., is an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Morehouse School of Medicine in the Cardiovascular Research Institute. He is also co-director of the Functional Genomics Core Facility, one of the core facilities of the Research Center for Minority Institutions (RCMI) network. Dr. Anderson earned his undergraduate degree from Southern Illinois University, and his Doctor of Philosophy degree in molecular genetics from Northwestern Medical School. After graduate studies, Dr. Anderson then completed a research fellowship in cardiovascular genomics at Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School in the laboratory of Drs. Richard E. Pratt and Victor J. Dzau. Dr. Anderson's research laboratory is focused on cardiovascular genomics. In particular, the modulation of the cellular transcriptome during early vascular smooth muscle cell (VSMC) fate determination from pluripotent stem cells in cell-based and murine models of differentiation and development.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
