Profile

I am interested in tissue regeneration and neovascularizaiton are two important events in the repair of damaged heart tissue after myocardial infarction.  I am studying the effects of stem / progenitor cell-based treatments in animal models following myocardial infarction, to assess the potential of these cells for the recovery and repair of ischemic cardiac tissue.  My interest lies in delineating the molecular mechanisms that regulate enhanced cardiomyocyte differentiation in engineered ES cells to cardiomyocytes.  This information might open novel ways to aid the repair and regeneration of damaged cardiac muscle after ischemic injury.
