    My laboratory is interested in the pathogenesis of heart valve disease and its impact on the onset and progression of heart failure. We use rodent and swine models of heart valve regurgitation, to understand the changes in the myocardial remodeling at multiple scales. Our recent work is also focused on linking functional changes in the myocardium to detectable genomic, transcriptomic, proteomic, and metabolomic changes, and investigate the potential of using their relationship for early detection of heart failure. Some of our work also involves developing new medical devices and technologies to repair heart valves and associated heart failure.
