Our lab is interested in understanding molecular motors and their roles in health and disease. We are particularly interested in cardiovascular diseases, including heart failure and familial cardiomyopathies. We are interested in understanding the mechanisms driving these diseases and leveraging these mechanistic insights into the development of precision medicine therapeutics. To do this, the lab uses an array of biochemical, biophysical, cell biological, computational, and engineering techniques to decipher how disease-causing perturbations affect contractility across scales from the level of single molecules to the level of engineered tissues.
