Bio/Research

The major focus of my research is on various aspects of the molecular biology of vascular disease and thrombosis. Other interests include the role of endoplasmic reticulum stress in human disease.

A wide range of molecular biological techniques are used including, RNA and DNA isolation and purification, agarose and polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, Northern and Western blotting, polymerase chain reaction, eukaryotic and prokaryotic protein expression systems, mRNA differential display, and screening of cDNA microarrays.
