Our laboratory researches hypertension, and in particular, salt-sensitive hypertension. We investigate this from a cell/molecular basis using cell culture, microscopy and whole animal experiments. We are interested in the renal and cardiovascular physiology during hypertension, with an emphasis on inflammation. Additionally, we will have a new project investigating the microbiome in patients with CKD/hypertension in the near future. Our laboratory supports excited and motivated undergrads!

Multiple roles are available. The PI allows the student to have some influence on his/her particular role in the laboratory after exploring options in the lab.
PI is open to different options according to what the student needs (ie, work study, volunteer, paid, research for credit).
This is completely variable on the student; however, it is expected that he/she is dedicated to the work. Of course, classes come first.
Students must be: willing to learn, work hard, excited about science/medicine and research, energetic and have a great attitude towards his/her peers.
