Research title: Developing Therapeutic Approaches for Hemorrhagic Stroke
RUNX1 transcription factor drives the progression of cardiac disease. The theraputic potential of small molecule RUNX inhibitors have yet to be investigated in context of Heart Failure with preserved Ejection Fraction (HFpEF) and Ischemia/Reperfusion (I/R) injury.
My research focus on charactarizing small molecule inhibitors of RUNX1 in context of heart diseases, with particular focus on cardiac Ischemia Reperfusion Injury and Heart Failure with preserved Ejection Fraction.
My research involves a combination of in vivo animal work and ex-vivo langundorff isolated heart experiments. In addition, i use molecular techniques such as calcium imaging, westren blot, PCR...etc.
