Research Interests

My research interests focus on the redox regulation of cell signaling as associated with many inflammatory diseases. We especially study the impact of low oxygen and the presence of small signaling molecules such as H2O2, NO and CO. Studies are conducted in immune cell cultures and animal and human tissues, using a wide range of techniques including spectroscopic, fluoroscopic and luminescent bulk and single cell assays, as well as immunhistochemical, cell and molecular biology techniques. We employ a unique in vitro enzymatic low-oxygen sytem and a unique ultrasensitive measurement technique of hydrogen peroxide as real-time assay and as end-point measurement assay.
