Personal Statement

My laboratory investigates the physiological roles of adhesion class G protein-coupled receptors in the kidney. Adhesion GPCRs are unique signaling proteins that are self-activated by tethered-peptide agonists. The goals of our research are to identify the function of understudied GPCRs to improve our understanding of kidney physiology in health and disease.

Areas of Specialty

Epithelial Physiology, Renal Physiology, Adhesion GPCRs
