My lab has 3 main research areas that all center around the pathophysiology of endothelial and vascular dysfunctions: 1) Regulation of the NO pathways in atherosclerosis, 2) Physiological and pathophysiological significance of hsp90-eNOS interaction in erectile function and 3) Role of MMP in vascular dysfunction.
