Research Interests: Current treatments for cardiovascular diseases are limited by the lack of understanding of not only intervention targets but also targeting methods. My lab tries to tackle this issue via a two-pronged approach. Through mechanistic studies, we are assessing some chromatin modulators, especially histone mark readers, as potential novel molecular targets. Meanwhile, we are inventing nano-based new platforms and modalities for localized and targeted therapeutic delivery. We envision that the synergy in these endeavors should accelerate the development of better treatments.
