About: The Microvascular Physiology Lab studies the human cutaneous circulation to understand how blood vessels function in health and disease. We are particularly interested in understanding the mechanisms that control blood vessel function and how those mechanisms change in people who have cardiovascular or metabolic disease, and what the best intervention strategies are to prevent or reverse disease in these patients.

Check out our ongoing research studies to see what we are up to these days!
