My research interest is the clinical expression and molecular etiology of human arterial disease. 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 arterial diseases. Through this work I hope to discover better diagnostics and novel therapies for patients with these serious conditions.
