Current Research and Scholarly Interests

We are interested in the hormonal and signal transduction pathways that control epithelial ion transport. Our model system involves tight epithelia, typically found in the distal nephron of the kidney. Clinical implications of our work include a better understanding of the pathogenesis of salt-sensitive hypertension and hypertension associated with the insulin resistance syndrome.
