Areas of Research Interest

My area of clinical research interest in  improving the quality of clinical data available for the treatment of patients with complicated cardiac anatomy through use of both retrospective analysis, and prospective randomized controlled trials. My area of basic science research interest is in the effects of cardiac phospholipases on myocardial metabolism and physiology, and on the contribution of dysfunctional phospholipase regulation to the propagation of human myocardial failure.
