  • Vivek Bhalla, MD

    Vivek Bhalla, MD

    Assistant Professor of Medicine (Nephrology)

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Bhalla's research interests are in the pathogenesis of diabetic kidney disease and salt-sensitive hypertension. Using molecular and transgenic approaches, the laboratory is interested in elucidating regulators of oxidative and carbonyl stress in glomeruli. We interface these studies with collaborative projects on biomarkers for human diabetic nephropathy.

    The laboratory also focuses on molecular mechanisms of insulin and aldosterone-induced sodium transport in the distal nephron.

  • Helen M. Blau

    Helen M. Blau

    The Donald E. and Delia B. Baxter Foundation Professor and Director, Baxter Laboratory for Stem Cell Biology

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Prof. Helen Blau's research area is regenerative medicine with a focus on stem cells. Her research on nuclear reprogramming and demonstrating the plasticity of cell fate using cell fusion is well known and her laboratory has also pioneered the design of biomaterials to mimic the in vivo microenvironment and direct stem cell fate. Current findings are leading to more efficient iPS generation, cell based therapies by dedifferentiation a la newts, and discovery of novel molecules and therapies.
