Research Interest

During her doctoral study she identified the signaling mechanisms of laminar shear stress-protected vascular disease, atherosclerosis development. During her first post-doctoral training at UAB, her research focused on defining mechanisms for oxidized low density lipoprotein-stimulated early event of atherosclerosis. Her research focused on investigating thiol/disulfide redox system and reactive oxygen/nitrogen species-controlled signaling mechanisms in association with atherosclerosis development. During the last several years she has developed a new technique for redox proteomics by redox ICAT analysis combined with mass spectrometry, which identifies redox-sensitive proteins and their associated mechanisms. Her current research focuses on identification of extracellular redox-regulated endothelial cellular function by examining mechanisms implicated in cardiovascular diseases
