Cardiometabolic and Neuromodulation Research Laboratory

The research in our laboratory focuses on unraveling the molecular mechanisms involved in the development of cardiovascular diseases and metabolic syndrome. We work on lipid mediator prostanoids and Poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARPs), family of enzymes that catalyze the transfer of ADP-ribose and help in cellular process such as DNA repair, genomic stability, and programmed cell death. The dynamic interplay between nervous system, immune system, and cardiovascular system in relation to disease development is our main focus.

Research Interests

  • Cardiovascular biology
  • Treatment strategies for hypertension and heart failure
  • Metabolic syndrome, obesity, diabetes, and diabetic retinopathy
  • Nerve recording and neuromodulation
  • Transgenic mouse models
  • Human exercise physiology
