Research Abstract

Our laboratory program is broadly focused on the role of the human complement system in renal disease.  Specifically, we are interested in the mechanisms by which local synthesis and activation of complement proteins in the kidney mediate renal injury.  Understanding such mechanisms may lead to the development of novel therapies.  This work employs human material, animal models, and cell lines.
