Research Description

I perform experiments involving mouse cardiac muscle using sinusoidal analysis techniques as well as using electrophoresis for identification of proteins. Also, I provide administrative and support tasks as needed, such as ordering supplies, maintaining records, and preparation of routine laboratory reagents. Currently, I am involved with cardiac zinc and its regulation of hypertrophy due to pressure overload studies by performing the rat surgery and other experimental procedures to support the research.
