Dr. Ma's research focuses on the biochemistry and physiology of nitric oxide and related biomolecules. He studies the biocapture of signal transduction cascades over skin acupuncture points/meridians as a translational research tool to assess diseases (obesity, hypertension, diabetes, and congestive heart failure) and to elucidate effects and mechanisms of mind-body practices. Additionally, he is interested in the neural control of sympathetic/cardiovascular functions and mechanisms of acupuncture via nitric oxide related signaling systems in the dorsal column pathway. His research projects encompass a broad spectrum of multidisciplinary techniques ranging from physiology/pharmacology, biochemistry, molecular biology, and histochemistry to integrative research in both animal models and human studies.
