Our laboratory explores the contribution of the immune system and inflammatory mediators to the progression of target organ damage in the setting of cardiovascular disease. We are pursuing several related projects in this field:
(1) The actions of type 1 angiotensin receptors on specific immune cell populations in hypertension, target organ damage, and tissue fibrosis.
(2) Cell-specific actions of inflammatory cytokines in regulating blood pressure and end-organ injury.
(3) Mechanism through which dendritic cells regulate renal sodium reabsorption.
(4) The contributions of Wnt O-acylation to kidney scar formation.
