I have started research on mechanisms of cardiac hypertrophy and heart failure. We havereported that angiotensin II type 1 receptor is involved in mechanical stress-induced cardiac hypertrophy and have reported novel mechanisms of heart failure such as ischemia, inflammation and aging. We have also reported new mechanisms of monocyte-induced angiogenesis and have recently found new mechanisms of aortic aneurism.
