Xiaoxu Zheng

Research Assistant Professor

Dr. Xiaoxu Zheng has combined training in clinical medicine with advanced research training in molecular biology and molecular genetics. His research work has focused on the molecular mechanisms of cardiovascular diseases and consists of four main areas:
• Perivascular brown adipocyte in regulation of vascular contractility
• Redox-sensitive modulation of the signaling pathways to alter the abnormal vascular tones
• Alternative splicing of smooth muscle gene program in hypertension
• Cardiac ischemia-reperfusion injury and stroke
