Research Interests for Patients

My research focus is on the immunologic mechanisms of heart injury and repair. I am specifically interested in cellular based therapies and novel preservation strategies that may prevent or reverse the heart injury that is inherent to transplantation. My hope is to be a part of expanding and improving this treatment option for many awaiting heart transplantation.
