My research utilizes genetic and pharmacologic approaches to understand the role of fibroblast growth factor family signaling in cardiac ischemia-reperfusion injury and in cardiac remodeling and repair. Major focuses of my research include understanding the signaling within different cardiac cell types which affects this process as well as the regulation of FGF bioavailability and signaling. My clinical research focuses on cardiac biomarkers in the diagnosis of myocardial infarction.
