Dr. Arboleda-Velasquez studies the cell signaling mechanisms that control the integrity of the vasculature in a diabetic environment. He uses novel technologies to study cell-cell and protein-protein interactions and uses imaging methods and enzymes to explore the cell signaling circuitry underlying diabetic microangiopathy. In addition, he is investigating novel mechanisms that contribute to proliferative diabetic retinopathy using patient-derived cell cultures and next-generation sequencing approaches. This research may lead to therapeutic approaches for diabetic retinopathy, which stands as the most prevalent cause of blindness in working adults.
