Research Interests

MicroRNA Regulation of Endothelial Expression of Vascular Cell Adhesion Molecule-1.
Vascular inflammation plays a critical role in atherosclerosis. Vascular injury triggers endothelial cells to activate leukocyte trafficking. Leukocytes adhere to the endothelium, cross into the vessel wall, and inflame the artery, causing inflammation which leads to atherosclerosis. Our research focuses on the regulation of vascular inflammation.
