Primary Area of Cardiovascular Research Interest
-Endothelial and Nitric Oxide Mediated Regulation of Blood Flow.
Related Areas of Cardiovascular Research Interest
-Blood flow modeling using microfluidic devices.
Summary of Cardiovascular Research Interest
We use flow-based analysis, electrophoresis, electrochemistry and fluorescence to probe and monitor various biological systems. Current projects include: 1) the development of a microchip-based blood brain barrier (BBB) mimic to study the effect of nitric oxide (NO) on the integrity of the BBB; 2) development of a microchip-based analysis system/reactor system to study the effect of NO on the onset of Parkinson's disease; 3) development of new microchip and electrochemical materials to enable the detection of NO release from endothelial cells.
