My career goal is to redefine molecular mechanisms in heart failure and cardiac regeneration through systems biology approaches and translate the bench discoveries to the clinic. My research is highly interdisciplinary at the interface of chemistry, biology and medicine. I have developed a keen interest in myocardial biology/heart failure and established a vibrant and externally funded research program in cardiovascular proteomics and systems biology. By creatively integrating my expertise in chemistry/proteomics with cardiac biology/medicine, I aim to develop fundamental principles that can provide transformative insights into the understanding of the molecular and cellular mechanisms in cardiac diseases and regeneration, to identify new molecular targets for diagnosis, and ultimately provide novel treatments for heart failure. It is my belief that in order to make significant impact in molecular medicine, we need to combine technological advances with molecular and cellular biology and bridge the silos between basic and translational/clinical research.
