Research Interests
Martin has a long-standing interest in analytical chemistry,  cardiovascular pharmacology, drug metabolism, disease mechanisms, and  the chemical biology of nitric oxide (NO), and has received numerous  awards/honors in recognition of his research achievements in these  areas. His more recent interests focus on the physiological significance  of nitros(yl)ation reactions and the role of NO storage forms in blood  and tissues; biomarkers of cardiovascular disease and adaptation to  hypoxia; hypoxic signalling and altitude physiology; regulation of  mitochondrial function and redox signalling; and systems-based  approaches to assess the role of nitrite, nitrate and other NO-related  products in vivo. Work in his laboratory is both hypothesis- and  curiosity-driven and includes basic as well as translational research  projects in all of the above areas.
