My research aims to unmask molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying vascular and cardiac dysfunction in the context of elevated cardio-metabolic risk. The importance of this research is outlined by the notion that epidemic of obesity and diabetes is alarmingly accelerating around the globe. Although advances in therapy have made substantial progress in improving the health of patients with diabetes, cardiovascular risk is still far to be eliminated and mechanism based therapeutic strategies are urgently required. In this regard, identifying novel molecular pathways of cardiovascular disease will be useful to develop potent diagnostic and therapeutic approaches.
