Biography

My laboratory examines molecular events that drive cardiovascular cell growth, differentiation and apoptosis. Over the past decade my laboratory has been investigating mechanisms of inter-tissue communication and how these systems contribute to physiological versus pathological tissue growth in the cardiovascular system.
