Research Interests
Our  group investigates  the  molecular, biochemical, and cellular mechanisms that underlie the pathophysiology of the vascular wall.  We  have  a fundamental interest in the endothelial response to oxidative and nitrosative stress through specific posttranslational modifications such as S-glutathionylation, S-nitrosylation and tyrosine nitration as well as redox signaling in endothelial cells. We are also interested in the role of the TGF-endothelin-1 axis in fibrosis  as this is a pathology  inherently  related  to endothelial dysfunction.  Finally, another aim of our group is to find  new antiangiogenic  strategies in order to halt tumor growth.
