Alpha-1 Anti-trypsin Deficiency (AATD) is a genetic disease with lung and liver disease presentations. The purpose of this study is to examine the density of the lung as measured by chest computed tomography (CT) and determine if existing emphysema predicts changes in the rate of subsequent emphysema or changes in CT, serum or plasma biomarkers of interest. The overarching goal is to develop biomarkers that can be used in interventional trials since lung function changes do not typically inform disease progression in AATD.

Elucidate the influence of intense light therapy pretreatment in patients undergoing cardiac surgery. We hypothesize that intense light exposure is associated with the peripheral stabilization of Per2 in human buccal swabs and plasma samples before surgery and with a decrease of Troponin I levels after surgery.

Do you have coronary heart disease, and are you interested in helping researchers improve how they treat and prevent this condition? This study is exploring new risk factors that may allow for more people with heart disease to get approved for an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD), a device that can detect and stop irregular heartbeats. To participate in this study, you must be 18 years old or older and already have or be eligible for an ICD. This study takes place in Buffalo, New York.

Are you an adult who does not have high blood pressure and is interested in research? This study will investigate how the brain regulates the body’s response to stress and how infection with HIV or pre-hypertension affects regulation. Your heart and brain activity will be measured while you are at rest, during a mentally stressful task, and while you feel angry. The study will also test whether a breathing exercise improves regulation. People with and without HIV and pre-hypertension will be included. To participate in this study, you must be between 21 and 65 years old and not have high blood pressure. This study is located in Miami, Florida.
