- Aging, post-menopausal women, cardiovascular disease risk, and mitochondrial dynamics
- Animal models include rodent aging, estrogen deficiency, ischemia-reperfusion injury, chronic ethanol ingestion, and exercise
- Estrogen receptor and PKC-dependent protective signaling in relation to oxidant stress
