Assistant Professor of Medicine, Cardiovascular Division


PhD, Loyola University Chicago, Maywood, IL

Summary

Dr. Bidwell received a Ph.D. from Loyola University Chicago and completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Cincinnati. His past and present research has focused on mechanisms and regulation of cardiovascular calcium transport, studying the biochemical and biophysical properties of individual proteins to their impact on physiology and pathophysiology. Current projects investigate the role of oxidative modifications of calcium transport proteins across this broad-spectrum of conceptual and technical approaches, supported by an American Heart Association Career Development Award
