My research program focuses on basic and translational research of vascular diseases including, intracranial aneurysms, aortic aneurysms, and brain arteriovenous malformations. These vascular lesions usually remain asymptomatic until they rupture. In case of intracranial aneurysms, rupture results in subarachnoid hemorrhage that can potentially cause severe mortality and morbidity.
Prevention of rupture of these vascular lesions is critical. We are working to identify new therapeutic targets that induce stabilization and regression of vascular lesions so that they remain unruptured and asymptomatic. We utilize novel animal models and human specimens to achieve these goals.
