Area of Expertise/Research Interests

Overall research interest: Non-lipid Causes of Vascular Disease.

Ongoing projects include:

  1. O-GlcNAc signaling and abnormal glucose metabolism in etiology of diabetic vascular disease;
  2. Role of leptin and TSP-1 in vasculopathy associated with metabolic syndrome;
  3. Mechanistic link between Metabolic dysfunction and Alzheimer’s Disease.


We utilize a variety of techniques including biochemical assays, cellular and molecular biology approaches, invasive and non-invasive procedures of lesion detection, metabolic phenotyping and cell-culture studies in conjunction with in vivo mouse models of diabetes, obesity and atherosclerosis, including transgenic mouse lines.
