Professional Background

Dr. Redmond received her PhD in Cardiovascular Pharmacology from University College Dublin (UCD), Ireland. Following postdoctoral training fellowships at the University of Tennessee, Memphis, and at The Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions in Baltimore she was recruited at the level of Instructor to Georgetown University Medical Center, Washington DC and was subsequently promoted there to Assistant Professor. Dr. Redmond joined the University of Rochester Medical Center in 1999, with a primary appointment in the Department of Surgery and a secondary appointment in the Department of Pharmacology and Physiology. Dr. Redmond was awarded tenure in March 2006.


The Redmond laboratory's focus is in Vascular Biology, relating particularly to cardiovascular disease including atherosclerosis and restenosis after angioplasty. General areas of interest include (i) Notch and Hedgehog signaling in adult vasculature, (ii) the cardiovascular effects of alcohol, (iii) regulation of smooth muscle cell fate and, (iv) vascular stem cells in remodeling and disease.
