Research Summary

My research interest is the clinical expression and molecular etiology of human aortic aneurysm. Aneurysm represents the anatomic expression of aortic organ failure with dilation and eventual tear; an event termed dissection associated with high mortality. In my research I utilize human and murine genetics as well as animal modeling to investigate the etiology and pathologic progression of inherited and sporadic aortic disease. Through this work I hope to discover better diagnostics and novel therapies for patients with aneurysmal conditions.
