Goals and Objectives


Research Goals and Objectives

Our group focus encompasses tissue injury and repair related to pathogenesis and therapeutics of multiple origins from molecular and cellular levels to its clinical impact.

Our objectives are:

  1. To define the biomarkers of diseases involving tissue repair and remodeling e.g. myocardial infarction, bronchial asthma.

  2. Determine early vascular changes in diabetes mellitus and metabolic syndrome patients to detect cardiovascular injuries in its earlier stage using non-invasive diagnostic tests and biomedical markers.  

  3. To evaluate the influence of gene polymorphism and tissue microenvironment on tissue remodeling, neoplasia and response to medications. 

  4. Describing 3D scaffold free models of related tissue types for tissue regeneration as well as drug testing.

  5. Explore the potential beneficial effects of vitamin D and antioxidants in reversing and repairing the vascular injuries.

  6. Examine the immunological reactions mounting after environmental insults or genetic modifications

  7. Establish animal models representing human cardiovascular disease and obstructive airway diseases.
