Biography

Christopher Pattillo received his B.S. degree (2001) in Biophysics at Centenary College of Louisiana and continued his education with a Master’s degree from University of Tennessee Health Sciences Center – Memphis (2004) and Ph.D. from Temple University (2007) under the direction of Dr. Mohammad F. Kiani.  Following graduate school, Dr. Pattillo moved to Louisiana and worked as a postdoctoral fellow in the laboratory of Dr. Chris Kevil.  Dr. Pattillo accepted a tenure track position in the Department of Physiology at LSUHSC in 2012.

Research

The Pattillo laboratory currently examines ischemia induced angiogenesis and arteriogenesis.  Both of these processes involve a balance of reactive oxygen species and antioxidants. We are interested in the contribution of the GSH:GSSG redox couple in controlling the involved signaling events.
