Dr. Arie Horowitz is an associate professor at the Cardeza Center for Vascular Biology Research at the Sydney Kimmel Medical College of Thomas Jefferson University. He holds a secondary appointment in the Department of Cancer Biology at the same college. The focus of the Horowitz laboratory is on vascular biology in general and on the molecular mechanisms that regulate vascular permeability in particular. The laboratory uses cell culture and mouse models to understand the homeostasis of the junctions between endothelial cells and their response to factors that disrupt them. He has addressed recently also the underlying pathophysiological and molecular mechanisms of congenital hydrocephalus. His research has been supported by grants from the National Hear Lung and Blood institute, and from the American Heart Association. He published close to fifty peer-reviewed original research and review articles, as well as editorials and book chapters.
Dr. Horowitz received his M.Sc. and D.Sc. degrees in bioengineering at the Israel Institute of Technology. He joined the Thomas Jefferson University faculty in late 2015, after holding faculty positions at the Dartmouth College School of Medicine and the Lerner Research Institute of the Cleveland Clinic. In addition to research, Dr. Horowitz teaches graduate and medical school students.
