Research Description:

My research aims to understand the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying cardiovascular diseases via novel systems biology approaches in conjunction with functional studies. Specifically, in cardiac regenerative biology and medicine, we aim to evaluate the efficacy of stem cell therapies for the treatment of heart failure using integrated proteomics and metabolomics approaches and to understand the paracrine signaling mechanism in cardiac regeneration. My research is highly interdisciplinary within the interface of chemistry, biology, and medicine. Success in our research will foster the development of new strategies for early diagnosis, prevention and better treatment of cardiovascular diseases.
