The research activities in my lab include investigation of the mechanisms involved in ischemic heart disease and development of effective pharmacological/molecular interventions based on sex hormones or stem/progenitor cell therapy for the treatment of myocardial ischemia. Our current interests are:
  1. Sex differences in myocardial responses to acute injury
  2. Stem cell-based therapy in myocardial ischemia
  3. Epigenetic regulation in stem cell function
