My laboratory studies the mechanisms that direct kidney development and regeneration. The kidney performs essential physiological jobs and renal failure has devastating consequences. We study how nephrons, the basic functional unit of the kidney, are made during development and regenerate after injury using the zebrafish, Danio rerio. Our long-term goals are to discover new biomedical interventions that can be used to treat or prevent kidney disease.
