Research

Dr. Goncharova’s research interests have focused on the signaling mechanisms regulating cellular energy metabolism, proliferation, motility and survival as it relates to the pathogenesis of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) and pulmonary lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM). Her current work specifically focuses on the role of mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) signaling network in metabolism, proliferation, and survival of pulmonary vascular smooth muscle cells in PAH.
