The Palygin lab is focused on ion channels and ion transport in the kidney, and we apply multiple sophisticated approaches to address unresolved questions of physiological mechanisms responsible for the regulation of renal function in health and disease. The capacity of the human kidney to control and regulate cardiovascular health is enormous and has been implicated in many of the physiological factors associated with the general health status. My laboratory is interested in several aspects of the kidney: its ability to control and regulate body electrolytes, its vulnerability to genetically related mutations, oxidative stress, albuminuria, and the role that ion channels and external factors play in these processes. The objective of my active NIH-supported research is to determine the mechanisms controlling the expression and activity of the inwardly rectifying K+ channels (Kir) in the kidney.
