Research Interests

The overarching goal of my laboratory is to understand vascular physiology in cardiovascular and renal diseases. Specifically, we study the mechanisms associated with vascular dysfunction during hypertension, inflammation, trauma (e.g., sepsis and SIRS), diabetes and chronic kidney diseases. The laboratory employs a wide range of cutting-edge techniques and multidisciplinary in vivo and in vitro experimental approaches including clinically relevant diseased mouse models, radiotelemetry, vascular isobaric and isometric force measurement, and biochemical and molecular biology methods.
