Scientific Focus

Current Research and Scholarly Interests

My research focuses on imaging cell signaling in the heart. I am developing molecular imaging probes that track to injured heart tissue, such that non-invasive imaging techniques, like cardiac MRI, can visualize these probe signals in real-time. The translational goal of my research is to develop new ways to detect early cardiac injury before permanent damage occurs, so that preventive medical therapy can be started.
