Our Mission

Our lab focuses on understanding molecular mechanisms used by the cells of the cardiovascular and immune systems to communicate with one another. Uncovering these mechanisms is important to advancing our ability to detect and treat human diseases from heart failure to Alzheimer's disease. Our lab specializes in using tools from biophysics and chemistry, which including computer simulations and traditional cell biology techniques. We collaborate extensively in the Department of Cell and Molecular Physiology and the Stritch School of Medicine to further enhance our research. Please check out our page for our recent projects.
