Professional Statement

My laboratory uses a multi-disciplinary approach to study the role of fluid-derived mechanical forces in vascular remodeling and heart morphogenesis in early mouse and zebrafish embryos. Using time-lapse, rapid confocal and multispectral imaging of florescent protein reporters we are characterizing changes in endothelial cells in response to mechanical stress in living organisms.
