I am most interested in the metabolism and physiological functions of hydrogen sulfide (H2S), a gas molecule produced in a wide array of mammalian cells. Using a plethora of state-of-the art techniques capable of exploring gene editing, post-translational modifications of proteins, antioxidant and redox balance, cellular proliferation and repair, vascular contractility and blood pressure control, to whole animal behavior and health, my team examines the pathogenic causes and the therapeutic strategies for cardiovascular diseases, diabetic complications, respiratory and liver functions, aging and longevity.
