The main area of my research is the elucidation of the molecular events that dictate the course of healing and especially inflammation and angiogenesis following ischemia, injury and the implantation of biomaterials and scaffolds for tissue engineering applications. In collaboration with VBT colleagues we are exploring the inter-relationship between TSP2 and the Akt/eNOS signaling axis in arteriogenesis. In addition, through the process of molecular dissection of cell-matrix interactions, we aim to incorporate rational design in the development of bioengineering applications such as tissue-engineered vascular grafts. Finally, we aim to define the role of substrate nanotopography in matrix assembly and the regulation of cell-matrix interactions. Recently, we have explored the role of TSP2 in matrix assembly and have shown that the lossof TSP2 results in reduced interation with von Willebrand factor, which provides an explanation for the bleeding diathesis in TSP2 KO mice. We have also initiated studies to investigate the role of TSP2 in diabetic wound healing. In our biomedical engineering-related research we have discovered that mir-223 regulates macrophage fusion in foreign body giant cell formation and have developed a nanoparticle-based strategy to ameliorate this process on the surface of biomaterials. Finally, we have expanded our biomaterial studies to include bulk metallic glass-based implants and have explored the impact of nanotopography on cell function.
