Research Interest

 My research focuses on:

  • Wnt signaling in vascular pathology and inflammation

  • Atherosclerosis at the macrovascular level

  • Alterations produced in kidney due to diabetes at the microvasculature level

  • The impact of diet-induced obesity and type 2 diabetes on coronary adhesion molecule expression in mice
