Research Description: 

In collaboration with the cardiac mechanics research group, I plan to comprehensively relate acute physiological responses of cardiomyocytes to longer-term transcriptional regulation of hypertrophy through modeling and experimentation of CaMKII. This novel approach may help interpret how molecular perturbations, drugs, and environmental factors affect long-term myocardial function.
