Dr. Jain is Director of the Case Cardiovascular Research Institute at Case Western Reserve University and the Ellery Sedgwick Jr. Chair & Distinguished Scientist University Hospitals-Case Medical Center. Dr. Jain’s research focuses on transcriptional mechanisms governing cellular differentiation and function. His laboratory efforts have highlighted the importance of a family of factors termed Kruppel-like factors that regulate critical aspects of heart, blood vessel, and immune cell biology. These research efforts have spawned novel areas of investigation with therapeutic implications for disease conditions such as arteriosclerosis, heart failure, metabolism and regenerative medicine.
