The Renovascular Research Laboratory focuses on development and application of techniques to study renal and cardiovascular physiology and pathophysiology in animal models and in humans.
Specific areas of interest include:
The laboratory is involved in short-term and long-term studies with research tools that include wet-lab methods, as well as sophisticated, high-resolution computerized tomography and magnetic resonance imaging, computer-based modeling, and image analysis. Disease mechanisms are often initially investigated in vivo using imaging, and subsequently correlated with tissue alterations determined with molecular biology and cell culture techniques. Potential therapeutic targets and interventions being explored include regenerative medicine, revascularization and novel drugs.
