My research focuses on the characterization of spontaneous hypertension in a novel modelĀ Chlorocebus aethiops sabaeus, the African Green Monkey. As an Old World non-human primate, the African Green Monkey is highly similar to humans in terms of physiology, gene structure, social hierarchy, and behavior. I am specifically interested in the connections between mitochondria, oxidative stress, and the adaptive immune system in this model.
