Research and professional interests

Understanding the cellular and molecular mechanisms regulating microvessel barrier function during health and disease

  • Vascular leak or hyperpermeability is a hallmark of inflammation and occurs in the process of many diseases including cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancer
  • Hyperpermeability consequently results in tissue edema, poor perfusion and parenchymal cell damage 
  • Research focuses on the role of phosphodiesterases, purinergic receptors and gender in the regulation of exchange microvessel barrier function under resting and stimulating conditions
  • Multiple research approaches have been employed in her research including in vitro primary cultured vascular endothelial cells and in vivo and in situ intact microvessels
