Laboratory Projects and Interests
- Regulation of renin expression and blood pressure control and kidney development.
- Sox6 role in renin regulation and hypertension control, specifically in renal artery stenosis induced hypertension.
- Use of human induced pluripotent stem cells to generate kidney organoids to study Sox6 function in hypertension
- Use BioVU to examine the association of Sox6 with disease outcomes in humans with hypertension and other cardiovascular diseases.
