The Gorelik Laboratory at Columbia University is interested in the study of cardiac inflammation and Kawasaki disease. We utilize a mouse model of Kawasaki disease in collaboration with the Arditi Lab in California, who are the developers of this model. In addition, topics in immunology are also being studied, such as the role of STAT3 in fibrosis, and collaborations with tissue engineering to create models of Kawasaki disease and inflammatory disease.
Dr. Gorelik is a pediatric rheumatologist and allergist/immunologist, and an early career physician scientist with funding from the National Institutes of Health and immunology foundations, such as the American Academy of Asthma, Allergy and Immunology, and the Job Research Foundation. Dr. Gorelik trained in medicine at Vanderbilt University school of Medicine; in pediatrics at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center; and completed research intensive fellowships in rheumatology and allergy/immunology at the University of Pittsburgh and Johns Hopkins Medical Institute.
