    Current Research and Scholarly Interests We are interested in the hormonal and signal transduction pathways that control epithelial ion transport. Our model system involves tight epithelia, typically found in the distal nephron of the kidney. Clinical implications of our work include a better understanding of the pathogenesis of salt-sensitive hypertension and hypertension associated with the insulin resistance syndrome.

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research focuses on the molecular and cellular biology of the human prostate. Developing realistic experimental models is a major goal, and primary cultures of prostatic epithelial and stromal cells are my main model system. Our discoveries are relevant to prevention, detection, diagnosis and treatment of benign and malignant prostatic diseases.
