Our research aims to understand the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying cardiovascular diseases via systems biology approaches featuring cutting-edge high-resolution mass spectrometry (MS)-based comparative proteomics and metabolomics in conjunction with functional studies. Our research is highly interdisciplinary within the interface of chemistry, biology, and medicine. Success in my proposed research will advance our understanding of the molecular basis of diseases and foster the development of new strategies for early diagnosis, prevention and better treatment of cardiovascular diseases. It is our belief that in order to make significant impact in molecular medicine, we need to combine technological advances with functional studies and bridge the silos between chemical and biological sciences as well as basic and translational/clinical research.
