Research Statement

My major research interest is centered on two fundamental questions surrounding the ubiquitously expressed protein Na+,K+-ATPase: the physiological role of the Na+,K+-ATPase structural heterogeneity, and the Na+,K+-ATPase signaling function. Specifically, my laboratory’s main goal is to further characterize these new aspects of Na+,K+-ATPase structure and function and explore new ways of protecting the ischemic myocardium using the cardiac Na+,K+-ATPase as a target for therapeutic intervention.
