Education:

University of Hawaii, Honolulu, Hawaii Ph.D. Physiology, 1990
Western Washington University, Bellingham, Washington B.S. Biology, 1985

Research Interests:

As a broadly trained physiologist, I am especially interested in two areas: the regulation of cardiac myocytes and their environment by cardiac fibroblasts and the regulation of neurotransmitters by astrocytes in the brain. Students working with cardiac fibroblasts describe pathways that contribute to or inhibit fibrosis. To do this they culture cells, isolate proteins, perform Western blots and immunoprecipitations. Students working with neuronal astrocytes describe serotonin uptake, release and reuptake, using a variety of techniques, including cell culture, assays and Western blots.
