Research Description:

My research area is cardiovascular physiology. Specifically, the lab is investigating novel therapeutic approaches that can restore cardiac contractile function (mechanical and electrical) in various cardiomyopathies. Currently, we are investigating the cardiac effects of a new compound that restores the nitroso-redox balance. We are also investigating the effects of lipids released from brown adipose tissue (i.e., batokines) on heart function. These are being testing in various disease models (myocardial infarction, pressure overload heart failure, diabetes, senescence, hypertrophy, and hypertension).
