Our lab group focuses primarily on translational research involving cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, which are the leading causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide. The overall goal of our research is to discover mechanisms and causes of disease in order to develop new approaches to treatment and prevention. We have a particular focus on molecular mechanisms of thrombosis (blood clot formation) and fibrinolysis (blood clot dissolution), cardiomyopathy and heart failure.
We welcome medical students, as well as graduate students for research training opportunities.
