Research and teaching
The primary focus of my research program is the investigation of smooth muscle biology in health and disease. We employ a wide range of approaches from contractile studies of vascular smooth muscle tissues to high-resolution protein structure determination and drug discovery initiatives. Translational success in this research endeavor requires investigation of the molecular basis of smooth muscle function, identification of abnormalities (dysfunctional signaling pathways) leading to contractile pathologies, and development of strategies to reverse abnormalities.
