Why is this doctor not rated?

Close

To ensure the accuracy of our patient satisfaction scores, we require that providers who see patients receive a minimum number of completed patient-submitted surveys before their reviews are listed on their profiles. Star ratings on this site are collected on a rolling basis from the previous 12 months.
Additionally, some of the physicians listed on our site do not see patients directly, and therefore, do not receive evaluation and ratings from patients.

Research Interests

In our lab, we focus on identifying the molecular mechanisms that control stem cell differentiation toward specific cardiac lineages. We aim to decipher signaling pathways, transcriptional and epigenetic mechanisms that regulate specific cardiac cell fates. We want to use this knowledge to identify mechanisms and factors important for cardiac cell development and to provide new tools to design stem cell-based strategies for cardiac repair. These are our current research interests:

  • Transcription regulation during cardiomyocyte differentiation
  • Mechanisms altered in congenital heart disease
  • Heart bioengineering
