I have 14 years of experience, and specialize in the field of muscle and cardiovascular diseases with specific knowledge in the areas of heart failure, ischemic heart diseases, and arrhythmia. I have published on such topics as p21 activated kinases, signal transduction, and cardiovascular diseases. Besides my routine research work in a lab, I have collaborated with people from different institutes in different countries who have the same interest in cardiovascular diseases as I have. I travel to different cities in the USA and abroad to have professional meetings, give presentations or seminars, or carry out experiments. I write research papers and apply for grant support from government agencies and from associations.
