Research Focus

The main focus of my research program is to decipher the extracellular signaling as mediated through extracellular vesicles, that regulates the interplay between host tissue and imposed challenges. These challenges can be physiological (exercise, age), metabolic (cancer, obesity), environmental (smoke, pollutants) or developmental (prenatal).

Research Interests

- Extracellular vesicles
- Exercise
- Metabolic
- Environment
