We study molecular renal physiology, and mosquito-borne disease control.


Our laboratory uses concepts and methods of systems biology to investigate regulatory processes that govern physiological phenomena. The methods include LC-MS/MS-based protein mass spectrometry, nucleotide microarray, bioinformatics, JAVA scripting, biochemical methods, light and electron microscopy, and cell and molecular biology methods. Our current interests are 1) hormone vasopressin-regulated processes that mediate renal water excretion, and 2) transgenic strategies that stop mosquito-borne virus spread.
