Cardiac Stem Cells & Regenerative Medicine

This research is focused on the regeneration and remodeling of tissue and organs for the purpose of repairing, replacing, maintaining, or enhancing cardiac function, as well as the engineering and growing functional tissue substitutes in vitro for implantation in vivo as a biological replacement for damaged or diseased myocardium.

Cell Signaling in Cardiovascular Disease

Cell regulation encompasses all the functions cells carry out to maintain homeostasis, in particular their responses to extracellular signals (hormones, neurotransmitters, etc.) and how cells transduce intracellular responses prompted by such signals.
