Research Interests

We are interested in biochemical mechanisms responsible for the pathophysiological sequelae of cardiovascular diseases including ischemic heart disease and atherosclerosis. Areas of research focus on enzymic and free radical targeting of membrane phospholipids, alterations in lipid metabolism, and alterations in signaling pathways as mechanisms involved in cardiovascular diseases. We combine our expertise using physiological models of disease coupled with expertise in mass spectrometry and bioorganic techniques to reveal new mechanistic insights into cardiovascular disease.
