DeLisa Fairweather, Ph.D., is director of translational research for the Department of Cardiovascular Diseases at Mayo Clinic's Florida campus. Dr. Fairweather's Translational Cardiovascular Disease Research Laboratory conducts translational research focused on finding individualized therapies and improved diagnosis for chronic inflammatory diseases.
Dr. Fairweather specializes in how sex differences in inflammation caused by environmental exposures lead to chronic inflammatory disease. She is an expert in myocarditis, dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) and heart failure, where she uses models that translate to human disease.
The focus of Dr. Fairweather's research is to find breakthroughs by better understanding the pathogenesis of disease. By doing so, she hopes to discover new diagnoses and therapies for patients with cardiovascular and autoimmune diseases such as myocarditis.
