Dr. Carl Franzblau’s many achievements include his extensive publishing in the field of cardiovascular and pulmonary diseases focusing on the role of connective tissue proteins in those disease processes. He played a key role in describing the nature of the chemical cross-links in collagen and elastin as well as describing the synthesis of these structural proteins in cell culture.

At the National Institutes of Health, Dr. Franzblau served on the Advisory Councils of the Heart Lung and Blood Institute and the National Center for Minority Health and Health Disparities, and chaired the Cardiovascular A study section.

Dr. developed City Lab Academy at BUSM, a free nine-month academic and laboratory skills training program for qualified high school graduates interested in pursuing a career and further education in biotechnology.
