My research is focused on aging, post-menopausal women, and cardiac ischemia reperfusion injury using animal models. We are particularly interested in the effects of estrogen deficiency on mitochondrial regulation of cell survival following myocardial infarction. Multiple levels of inquiry addressing mitochondrial quality control regulation and immune signaling is emphasized.

Improving heart health for older women
Heart attacks are the leading cause of death among postmenopausal women. New funding from the National Institute on Aging will enable Penn State researchers to explore the links between tiny receptors in our immune systems called inflammasomes and how/when cells die. These links may enable researchers to develop new therapies to treat and prevent heart disease in older women.
