Research methds and techniques

My project utilizes genetically engineered rat and dietary manipulations model to investigate the molecular mechanisms of hypertension and diabetes induced cardiomyopathy. The cardiac function is assessed by echocardiography. The morphometric analysis, histology, immunohistochemistry, and molecular biology methods are also used to study heart injury.
