Research

Our lab 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). Our current work specifically focuses on the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) and HIPPO signaling networks in pulmonary vascular cell behavior, pulmonary vascular remodeling and PAH.
