The central goal of my research program is to understand the molecular and cellular mechanisms that contribute to the generation of reactive oxygen species and pathophysiology of vascular disease. I am an internationally recognized expert in NADPH oxidases and detection of reactive oxygen species in blood vessels and vascular cells. As a practicing cardiologist, I strive to integrate research findings across the spectrum of molecular mechanisms to cultured cells to animal models to human disease. A secondary focus utilizes the selectivity of RNA aptamers for therapeutic targeting.
