Research Interest

My main research interest is in diabetic nephropathy and the mechanisms involved in the progression of the disease. Therefore, the goal of my research is for better treatment for the prevention of diabetic kidney disease.  I am a renal physiologist who has an interest in looking at changes that occur both in renal function and in the renal microcirculation. I also have an interest in ischemia/reperfusion injury in the kidney following renal transplantation.
