My research focuses on understanding the controversial pathophysiological impacts of autophagy and mitophagy in cardiovascular diseases. By screening for compounds that modulate these complex biological processes in cell-based assays, I will evaluate their potential therapeutics and toxicities on heart failure using whole-body molecular imaging technology.
