Current research strengths include mechanisms of angiogenesis and vasculogenesis, hematopoietic contributions to angiogenesis and metastasis, stem cell differentiation into vascular lineages, lipid mediator (sphingosine 1-phosphate and eicosanoid) signaling, biology of plasminogen activation, vascular cell signal transduction, mechanisms of inflammatory angiogenesis, molecular mechanisms in hypertensive vascular disease, neural/ vascular interactions, and reactive nitrogen species and NO.
