About

Investigating the role of protein quality control in the pathogenesis of heart failure, with two major themes: 1) The role of muscle=specific ubiquitin ligases (MuRF proteins) in regulating cell signaling; and 2) Identifying the role of muscle-specific ubiquitin ligases degrade inherited mutant muscle proteins (e.g. cMyBP-C and BAG3 proteins) in the pathogenesis of heart failure.
