"The potential benefits of metabolic modulation are enormous: this new class of drugs tackles the number one cause of death and disability in North America - cardiovascular disease," said Gary Lopaschuk, Director of the UofA's Cardiovascular Research Group and President and CEO of MMRL.
Formed in 1997 with the assistance of the university's Industry Liaison Office and the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry, and support from the Alberta Heritage Foundation for Medical Research (AHFMR), MMRL has become a world leader in the development of metabolic modulators.

Dr. Gary Lopaschuk focuses on the regulatory pathways involved in energy metabolism in the heart, particularly the integrated regulation of fatty acid oxidation and carbohydrate metabolism in both the normal heart, the heart of a diabetic, and the reperfused ischemic heart.
To understand Dr. Lopaschuk's work, one needs to know that the heart requires fuel from a balance of fat and carbohydrate sugars in order to maintain normal pump function. In many forms of heart disease, the heart shifts to using fat as its primary energy source, which is harder on the heart.
In 2010, Dr. Lopaschuk was awarded the title of Distinguished University Professor. He demonstrates his commitment to learning through teaching and mentoring, saying: "In the classroom and in my laboratory, everyone is aware they're going to be asked to participate and come up with ideas. It's important that students are thinking while they're learning, not just memorizing the material…and they're not going to learn unless they find it interesting."
