Dr. Kumar has been involved in examining the mechanisms of pregnancy-associated vascular adaptations and its long term implications on fetal heath. His current research examines the influence of androgens on cardiovascular function in adults focusing on sex-specific signaling mechanisms. Another aspect is to examine the impact of androgens on pregnancy and related complications such as preeclampsia and fetal growth restriction. In order to accomplish his goal, Dr. Kumar has ongoing projects which utilize integrative approaches ranging from cell and molecular biology as well as human tissues to whole animal physiology. He has published more than 40 peer reviewed publications and several book chapters. His research is well funded with grants from a variety of internal and external sources such as National Institute of Health (NIH). Additionally, he has trained several postdoctoral and resident fellows as well as graduate students.
