    Research Interest:
    Broadly speaking, the goal of our laboratory research is to improve human health by investigating the angiogenic activities of endothelial cells in relation to cardiovascular development and regenerative biology. We use cultured cells, stem cells, small laboratory animals, microscopy, histology, immunohistochemistry, and computational approaches to address specific questions of biomedical relevance. Our laboratory research allows us to understand, at the molecular level, how defects in endothelial cells activities give rise to numerous cardiovascular disease and cancer.

    Minimum time commitment in hours per week: 8
