Research Interests

The focus of my research is to understand how the immune system governs the pathophysiology of heart failure. Integrated themes of the ongoing projects in my laboratory include:

  • Immunomodulatory mechanisms of infarct healing after myocardial infarction;
  • Mechanisms controlling the initiation and resolution of inflammation in the heart;
  • The impact of heart failure on medullary and extramedullary hematopoiesis; and
  • The effects of cardiovascular risk factors on immune homeostasis.
