The main goal of my research team is to understand the mechanisms by which local and global calcium signals regulate excitation-contraction coupling and excitation-transcription coupling in arterial smooth muscle cells during physiological and pathological conditions.

What you’ll learn:

  • Diabetes and Vascular complications
  • Understand what is arterial (myogenic) tone and the role of different ion channels involved.
  • Key roles for AKAP5 and AC5 in P2Y11-mediated stimulation of type Ca2+ Channel activity and vasoconstriction (ex vivo)
  • Implement a multiscale approach for any given research program.
