Research Interests: Separately, nitric oxide (NO) and H2S have clinical significance and application, and may have yet untold significance in signalling and NO trafficking. However, their interaction, and the possibly beneficial products thereof, is not understood well enough to harness for clinical application. I am interested in characterizing the interaction(s) of nitrite (NO2-) or nitrosylated proteins and acid labile H2S or thiol-containing proteins and exploring the therapeutic potential of possible products.

Poster/Oral Presentations:
Abstract entitled "Exploring the effects of sulfide on nitric oxide bioavailability" accepted as poster and oral presentation at the Nitric Oxide Society's Nitrite/Nitrate conference, July 2014, in Cleveland, OH.
