My current research areas are using biologically based therapies for cardiac regeneration and biological pacemakers. The research using cardiosphere-derived cells has demonstrated that the cells are better in their functional repair capacity and in their angiogenic ability to secrete favorable paracrine factors that other cells in clinical use do not. The lab is studying various methods of delivering the cells and determining the immunogenicity of allogeneic stem cells in small and large animal models.
