Mechanical loads, transduced from the extra-cellular space, act on intra-cellular signaling cascades that influence gene expression and temporal tissue structure. The PI’s work, and that of the Translational Biomechanics Lab (TBL) is based on adapting fundamental engineering principles to understand, manipulate, and control the behavior of healthy and diseased cardiovascular tissue. 
Accordingly, the PI’s research thrust areas include: Vascular Growth and Remodeling, Long-Term Mechanical Support Therapy, Atherosclerosis, Cardiovascular Birth Defects, 3D Tissue Engineering, Regenerative Medicine, Coronary Artery Bypass Alternatives, Extra-Cellular Matrix Biology, and Mechanisms of Aging.
