Research Interests

Cell Biology of cell surface interactions with the extracellular environment. Studies have included investigations of yeast membrane composition and ethanol tolerance, and of vascular smooth muscle extracellular matrix molecules and their structural and functional roles in cardiovascular disease. Also studies of acid phosphatase and cellulase enzyme activities in Penicillium species. Currently studying antibiotic resistance patterns in hospital isolates and CD147 function in endothelial cells.
