Dr. Eric Krause Ph.D.


Dr. Eric Krause studies the interplay among the neural circuits that regulate cardiometabolic function and those controlling mood and effect.

Director of the Center for Integrative Cardiovascular and Metabolic Disease (CICMD)

The Center for Integrative Cardiovascular and Metabolic Disease serves as a scientific hub that fosters research and training centered on the etiology, prevention, and treatment of cardiometabolic disease.

Research Profile

lab experiment

My laboratory uses receptors for peptides as phenotypic markers for neural circuits controlling cardiometabolic homeostasis.  Using this approach, we’ve discovered that within the brain and peripheral ganglia, neurons that express receptors for oxytocin or angiotensin-related peptides, can be manipulated to control neuroendocrine, cardiovascular, and behavioral responses to psychological or physiological stress.
