Research Description: 

My research interests include: (1) adeno-associated viral vector (AAV)-mediated tissue specific gene transfer and gene expression; (2) the pathogenesis of cerebrovascular malformation; (3) development of new therapies for ischemic stroke and arteriovenous malformation; and (4) the impact of aging, peripheral injury (such as bone fracture), and innate immune response on stroke recovery.

Primary Thematic Area: 
Vascular & Cardiac Biology
Secondary Thematic Area: 
Research Summary: 
My research is focused on uncovering the mechanisms and development of new therapies for the cerebrovascular diseases including brain vascular malformations, stroke, and cognitive dysfunction.
