Research Description

Dr. Sen’s program is interested in tissue injury and repair and works across three organ systems- skin, brain and heart. His group is interested in miRNA biology, redox signaling and tissue oxygenation. In the skin, the Sen group works on wound healing – both experimental as well as clinical. In the brain, specific focus is directed towards stroke biology and related neurodegeneration. The Sen group has identified the alpha-tocotrienol form of vitamin E as a major protector against stroke-induced injury to the brain. In the heart, emphasis is on post-infarction myocardial remodeling with emphasis on miRNA biology. Across all of the above programs, the Sen groups uses advanced MRI, echocardiographic as well hyperspectral imaging approaches.
