General: Cardiovascular and renal physiology
Specific: Mechanisms of hypertension; role of heme oxygenase and associated metabolites in the regulation of blood pressure and renal function; role of P450 metabolites of arachidonic acid in the regulation of blood pressure and renal function; role of heme oxygenase and associated metabolites in the regulation of body weight and metabolism
Genetically engineered mouse models; chronic instrumentation of mice for long-term blood pressure and renal function studies; chronic renal intramedullary interstitial infusion in mice; 24 hr measurement of metabolism including oxygen consumption, activity, heat production; antisense DNA targeting; molecular biology methods for study gene expression and activity.
