Recent Interests:

My research focus is to discover infarction genes that are naturally occurring allelic variations that modulate infarct volume through a collateral-independent manner. These infarction genes can provide a powerful path toward the development of novel drug targets for ischemic stroke treatment. To study my research interest, I employ three major experiments that are collateral vessel density measurement, infarct volume measurement after surgically occluded distal middle cerebral artery, and ex vivo study of brain slices under in vitro oxygen deprivation
