Research Interest:

My research interests concern the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying hypoxic and toxic injury to liver and heart cells and organs stored for transplantation surgery. In particular, my laboratory is applying new techniques of laser scanning confocal and multiphoton microscopy to characterize the physiology of single living cells, including the assessment of ion homeostasis, mitochondrial function, electrical potentials, oxygen and nitrogen free radical formation, membrane permeability and other biochemical parameters during the pathogenesis of lethal cell injury.
