Research Interests:

Research lies in the area of general cardiovascular pathophysiology.  Specifically, control of solute and water transport and blood flow in small blood vessels, micro-circulation and vascular cell biology.  Cellular basis for mechanistic alteration(s) of the vascular wall in normal, hypertensive, diabetic and alcoholic environments. We are monitoring intracellular signaling pathways in endothelial cells after activation with inflammation agonists.  Thus, inflammation, injury, and ischemia are investigated using in vivo and in vitro models.
