I am a Professor and Principal Investigator of a lab that investigates the molecular basis of heart failure, including the roles of sex and ageing, and the mechanisms of SARS-CoV2 cardiac injury. We are part of the IMPART Team Canada Network at Dalhousie Medicine and work to translate our research into novel therapies. Our research is supported by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada, and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada.
