Research Interests:

I strive to understand how mechanical forces contribute to homeostasis and the pathogenesis of adult tissues. During vascular remodeling, the growth suppression and fate specification are evident in endothelial cells, but how mechanical forces (fluid shear stress) regulates cell cycle arrest and triggers arterial-venous specification is yet an open question. …

TBA

Research Interests:

My work is focused on small GTPases of the Arf and Rab families, and their roles in membrane trafficking and cell motility. My expertise is in imaging and quantitative image analysis.

Research Interests:

My research is focused on understanding the role of cell cycle control in arterial vs venous endothelial cell identity. Furthermore, my work aims to decipher how dysregulation of endothelial cell cycle leads to arteriovenous malformations (AVM) and whether the use of cell cycle modulators can be explored as a therapy …

Research Interests:

My research interests are focused on studying the dynamics and regulation of endosomal/lysosomal system in brain. I have been investigating the intracellular machinery involved in polarized protein transport in neurons, in particular, the neuronal secretory and endocytic pathways, to elucidate the mechanisms of intracellular trafficking in health and disease.

Research Interests:

My research is focused on understanding the mechanisms of microbial infection and the host defense against pathogenic microorganisms, in particular through dissecting the role of BAI1, an adhesion G-protein coupled receptor (aGPCR), in phagocytic clearance of Gram-negative bacteria and the mechanisms underlying this innate immune response.
