Teresa Seefeldt major research interests are in the area of oxidative stress. In particular, she is interested in thiol redox state and the effects of thiol modifications on cell function. Specifically, her research interests are 1. Development of models of thiol oxidative stress in cardiomyocytes 2. Regulation of thiol redox state in cardiomyocytes 3. Caffeic acid phenethyl ester as an anticancer and chemopreventive agent 4. Inhibition of glutathione reductase as a novel mechanism to increase cancer sensitivity to chemotherapy.
