Description of Interests

The lab is generally interested in the pathological mechanisms of kidney and vascular diseases. We take a proteomic approach to study molecules that serve structural or functional roles in kidney filtration. Particularly, we are trying to understand how the kidney podocytes maintain and regulate their slit diaphragm, as well as their interactions with the glomerular basement membrane.
