Key areas of our research are the molecular & cellular mechanisms regulating heart (metabolism in cv disease), autocrine-paracrine pathways (modulating cardiac cell signaling and function), and metabolic signaling pathways in atrial fibrillation. Processes under investigation include: regulation of heart metabolism/function; AMPK protection against solid organ ischemia; JNK pathway in reperfusion injury; cardiac autocrine/paracrine factors; MIF CD74 signaling; novel myocyte autocrine proteins; atrial fibrillation; and LKB1 role in cardiac growth and remodeling.
