Research interests lie with coronary atherosclerosis and platelet function. The particular focus is on platelet function as it relates to the acute coronary syndrome. We are currently investigating the relationship between platelet polymorphisms and basic platelet function. Our future plans are to study the effects of aspirin therapy on platelet function and determine the definition of aspirin resistance biologically and clinically in patients coronary artery disease
