Our research focuses on understanding the molecular mechanisms of glomerular diseases, in pathophysiology of chronic renal failure. We generated genetically engineered mouse models and immortalized podocyte cell lines that explore the effects of grown factors as VEGF-A in health and in diseases. We study how general disorders like diabetes or local disorders such as glomerulopathy can induce irreversible kidney damage. Employing genetic, molecular biology and multiple imaging tools either in vivo or in vitro, we identify the mechanisms involved in kidney disorders that may be useful to design prevention and treatment strategies to target fatal renal abnormalities.

 Biography
Research Interest :

My post-doctoral research has focused on the roles of fibroblast growth factor receptors during kidney development. I have been using a conditional knockout approach to target the various renal lineages. My post-doctoral experience focused on kidney development: including receptor tyrosine kinases and how their downstream adaptors play key roles in ureteric branching morphogenesis and kidney formation. My independent research focuses on vascular formation and endothelial precursors during organogenesis and disease, with a particular focus on the kidney.
