Description of CVI Expertise

CVI Program Unit(s):
Lipid / Atherosclerosis / CAD / ACS / Prevention
Myocyte Biology / Heart Failure
Biotechnology / Nanomedicine / Imaging
Thrombosis / Hemostasis

CVI Research Description:
I am interested in immunologic and inflammatory events affecting the cardiovascular system, with particular interest in replacement therapies, whether by manipulation of stem cells or through cardiac transplantation. Optimizing outcomes of cardiac transplantation is another special interest.
