Daniel D. Myers, Jr., DVM, MPH, DACLAM
Professor of Vascular Surgery. Director, Conrad Jobst Vascular Research Laboratories.
Dr. Myers received his DVM degree from Tuskegee University School of Veterinary Medicine, and completed his comparative medicine training at the University of Michigan. Dr. Myers received his Masters of Public Health in Hospital and Molecular Epidemiology from the University of Michigan. He is a Diplomat of the American College of Laboratory Animal Medicine. Dr. Myers has a joint appointment with the Department of Surgery and the Unit of Laboratory Animal Medicine (ULAM). He also serves as Chair for the University of Michigan Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC). Currently Dr. Myers is Director of the Conrad Jobst Vascular Research Laboratories, University of Michigan and is nationally recognized for his expertise in translational animal model development.
The Myers Laboratory studies and evaluates novel therapeutics for the prevention and treatment of deep venous thrombosis. We use in vivo and molecular methods to study therapeutic drug response to minimize venous disease pathogenesis. Our group engages in interdisciplinary collaborations within and outside of the U-M for the extrapolation of pre-clinical research findings to develop new preventative and therapeutic strategies for patients.
The focus of the Myers laboratory includes the following areas:
- Translational Animal Models of Vascular Disease
- Sex Differences and Aging during Venous Thrombosis
- Selectin Biology and Cancer Metastasis during Venous Thrombosis
- Metabolomic Mechanisms of Venous Thrombosis
