Augmentation of Tissue Perfusion in PAD with Ultrasound-mediated Cavitation

The major goal of this project is to explore how ultrasound-mediated cavitation of microbubble contrast agents can produce augmentation in tissue perfusion, and to assess the mechanism by which flow increases.

Identification of the role of HDL function in human cardiovascular disease and stroke through proteomics and genetics

This project aims to study the cardiovascular risk prediction ability of HDL’s cholesterol efflux function compared to HDL cholesterol levels in stroke patients from a bi-racial cohort, REGARDS.

Predicting the Breast Cancer Risk for Women Veterans

The goal of this proposal is to extract SNP information from the Million Veteran Program data and together with demographic, life style, family history, and other information obtained from the MVP and clinical data, to build a breast cancer risk prediction model that can be applied to women veterans enrolled in the MVP.

Development of Poly ICLC for neuroprotection against ischemic brain injury

This proposal seeks to advance PolyICLC, a compound that has shown efficacy as a prophylactic treatment in mice, through our novel nonhuman primate stroke model, allowing for eventual translation into patients at risk of brain ischemic injury.

Biomarker assessment for identifying heightened risk for cardiovascular complications during long-duration space missions

With the proposed work we will explore new paradigms for: (a) predicting risk for developing atherosclerotic complications in astronauts, (b) monitoring in-flight changes in risk profile that may occur in the setting of deep space exploration, and (c) identifying endothelial susceptibility to the detrimental effects of space radiation. I oversee data collection and processing, coordinate with other statisticians and bioinformaticians on managing the data and performing statistical analyses.

Colorectal Tumor Risk Prediction in the PLCO Trial

The study will use detailed risk-factor information for colorectal cancer (CRC), including genome-wide genetic data as well as lifestyle and environmental risk factors, to build and validate a comprehensive risk-prediction model using data from a large CRC consortium and the PLCO trial as an independent validation study. As Co-I, I participate in the development of the models and the statistical advisory of the study.
