Scientific Focus

Current Research and Scholarly Interests

Dr. Bhalla's research interests are in the pathogenesis of diabetic kidney disease and salt-sensitive hypertension. Using molecular and transgenic approaches, the laboratory is interested in elucidating regulators of oxidative and carbonyl stress in glomeruli. We interface these studies with collaborative projects on biomarkers for human diabetic nephropathy.

The laboratory also focuses on molecular mechanisms of insulin and aldosterone-induced sodium transport in the distal nephron.
