Assistant Professor in the Department of Medicine, Division of Cardiovascular Disease.  Dr. Rowe joined the faculty of UAB in November of 2014, coming from the Cardiovascular Institute, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center-Harvard Medical School.  Dr. Rowe received his Bachelors of Science in Biology from Brandeis University and both his Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy in Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology from Yale University.  Dr. Rowe's research interest focuses on understanding how exercise influences mitochondrial remodeling and how this remodeling leads to improved metabolic function in diseases that affect the cardiovascular system.  Specifically, Dr. Rowe is interested in the alterations in the gene expression that ultimately result in physiological changes that could help to identify new target pathways for therapeutic interventions for metabolic disorders.
