Research interests:

 A close link between heart failure (HF) and diabetes mellitus (DM) has long been recognized in the clinical setting. However, the challenge of understanding the association between DM and HF is complicated by the multifaceted interplay between various hemodynamic, metabolic, and other physiological factors that ultimately impact on cardiovascular system. Moreover, the multifarious web of interconnected processes begins with the onset of DM and the cumulative effects on the cardiac abnormalities may not become clinically apparent for several years or more. Thus, in terms of the actual impact of DM on the HF, we are still only seeing the tip of the proverbial iceberg today. Currently, increasing attention has been paid to insulin resistance as a distinct cause of cardiac dysfunction and heart failure in diabetic patients. Insulin resistance and abnormal glucose metabolism are very common in heart failure patients, being identified in 43% of these patients, and such abnormalities are associated with decreased cardiac function. In addition, evidence has emerged that myocardial insulin resistance is central to altered metabolism in the failing heart and may play a crucial role in the development of HF. Hence, my current research interest is to investigate how the metabolic changes affected cardiac maladaptive remodeling and consequently development of cardiomyopathy. Specifically, we have manipulated several insulin resistant and inflammatory animal models to illustrate the correlation and interaction of the multiple risk factors which affect metabolism and cardiovascular functions during diabetes process.
