My research interests are divided into three broad categories: 

  1. Utilizing genetic and multi-omic approaches to identify novel risk factors, molecular biomarkers, and molecular pathways implicated in cardiovascular diseases in African Americans, with the ultimate goal of better understanding the biology and consequently identifying drug targets for cardiovascular diseases
  2. Application of pharmacogenomics in cardiovascular drug response in African Americans 
  3. Reducing health disparities through translational research
