My research focuses on the role of oxidative stress in cardiac dysfunction following myocardial infarction, as well as novel bioengineered therapeutic strategies to prevent heart failure. Current projects range from research on transgenic mouse models, the effects of oxidative stress on progenitor cell function, and through collaborations at Georgia Institute of Technology, the delivery of antioxidant proteins and signaling inhibitors for the preservation/restoration of cardiac function following infarction.
