Personal profile

Research Interests

My primary clinical interest is in adult cardiovascular disease. My practice has focused on the management and treatment of patients with coronary artery disease. I am also interested in the diagnosis and management of arterial thrombosis. My research interests align with these clinical interests. My primary investigative focus is and has been on the mammalian plasminogen activator system and the role this system plays in cardiovascular disease. We apply a multidisciplinary approach in this effort, and utilize molecular and cellular approaches, as well as animal and human studies.
