research focus: 

Examination and manipulation of molecular regulatory mechanisms of heart cell lineage development and disease. Studies of cell lineage specification and maturation in the developing and diseased heart. Analysis of the molecular hierarchies that control the maturation of specific cell types including cardiomyocytes, valve progenitors, smooth muscle cells and fibroblasts in the heart. Expertise in cardiac progenitors characterization of cardiomyocytes experience in immunophenotypically, functionally and molecularly characterizing cardiomyocyte and valve progenitor cell populations from different sources including adult, neonatal, and embryonic cells.
