Mahsa Ranji

Mahsa Ranji, Ph.D. is an Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM). Dr. Ranji has received her PhD in electrical engineering from University of Pennsylvania followed by a postdoctoral training at Sanford-Burnham Medical research institute in La Jolla. Specializing in biomedical optics, Dr. Ranji's focus is in developing non-invasive tissue diagnostic tools. She is the director of the UWM Biophotonics Laboratory, which focuses on optical imaging particularly fluorescence imaging, instrumentation design, and image processing tool development for biomedical applications. Dr. Ranji collaborates with clinicians at the Medical College of Wisconsin and University of Wisconsin Madison to study tissue metabolism and oxidative stress in diseases using optical imaging.

Optical Cryoimaging Reveals a Heterogeneous Distribution of Mitochondrial Redox State in ex vivo Guinea Pig Hearts and its Alteration during Ischemia and Reperfusion
Objective: Oxidation of substrates to generate ATP in mitochondria is mediated by redox reactions of NADH and FADH2. Cardiac ischemia and reperfusion (IR) injury compromises mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation. We hypothesize that IR alters the metabolic heterogeneity of mitochondrial redox state... Read more
