Our research group is interested in studying the genetic basis of congenital heart disease and the role cilia play in aberrant hedgehog signaling as well as it’s role in breaking symmetryin the developing embryo. My personal interest, in addition to these projects, is to utilize Cardiac targeting Peptide, identified from a combinatorial in vitro and in vivo phage display methodology from my graduate studies days, to target the heart as a trojan horse delivering carges of both diagnpstic and therapeutic potential.
- Exome sequencing
- Cell culture
- Animal models
- Small animal imaging
Interested in collaborating on
To collaborate in delivering potential therapeutic nucleic acids in animal models of congestive heart failure utilizing cardiac targeting peptide.
