Research in the laboratory concentrates on control of cerebral circulation. The primary focus of this research involves autocrine/paracrine control of the newborn cerebral microvasculature during physiologically stressful and pathological situations, and the cellular mechanisms involved in such control. We investigate autocrine and paracrine communication within the vessel wall, with specific current focus on the endogenous gasotransmitters, carbon monoxide and hydrogen sulfide.
