Research Interests

The principal current research interest in my laboratory involves investigating gene expression changes that occur in certain organs in several different rat models of hypertension.  We wish to identify genes that may contribute to hypertension as well as those that are regulated by high blood pressure.  The former group might suggest new targets for lowering blood pressure therapeutically.  We hope to develop a database that will be useful to other hypertension investigators.
