Research Interests:  My current area of interest focuses on the metabolic bases for the the early events in atherosclerosis, in particular, the role of high density lipoproteins (HDL) in the development of the fatty streak. Using a genetic approach, as well as molecular and biochemical techniques, we investigate the dynamics between lipoproteins and cells of the artery wall in the disease process.

Research Interests:  The primary goal of my research is to understand the fundamental properties that govern signal transduction. In particular, I am interested in how dynamic cellular behavior (such as protection of the ischemic myocardium) can be attributed to hierarchical relationships within protein networks.  This overall goal is pursued in three main projects. First, we are examining the formation of multiprotein complexes at subcellular organelles to determine how changes in the constituents of these complexes alter phenotype. Second, we are studying the behavior of tyrosine kinase modules (such as Bmx) in protection of the ischemic heart and in the development of heart failure. Third, we are examining structure-function relationships in cardiac protein networks.
