Our strong clinical research program, especially in the fields of acute kidney injury and hypertension, has been complemented by our growing basic research program in regulation of ion transport. We have obtained extramural funding for a broad range of clinical research projects in the areas of diabetic nephropathy, dialysis, nutrition and renal transplantation. Our NIH funded basic science research is focused on hypertension and regulation of ion transplant by FXYD proteins.
