VASCULAR ION CHANNEL LABORATORY
Our laboratory is focused on identifying mechanisms of vascular dysfunction in the presence of cardiovascular risk factors and how vascular ion channels play a role in the disease process. We use a combination of physiological, cellular, and molecular techniques to investigate ion channels in disease pathways in animal models and human subjects. We aim to provide novel therapeutic targets to prevent the advancement of cardiovascular disease in at risk individuals.
