Our research focuses on mechanisms of cardiovascular and endocrine diseases in humans, animal models, tissue/cellular systems, mitochondria and enzymes. Our approaches include: epidemiological analysis of human risk factors, (an integrated) pharmacological examination of genetic, surgical and spontaneous mouse models of disease, characterization of neural control of respiratory function in tissue slice preparations, and identification of structure-function relationships in mitochondrial systems and enzymes.
