Research Interests

My principal research interest relates to kidney disease in African Americans. It is a fact that kidney disease occurs more frequently in this population than others. However, the cause has largely eluded the scientific community. Latest research has shown a strong association between two variants in a gene called APOL1 and occurrence of kidney disease. The exact mechanism of this association and/or causation is still an area of active research. My research focuses on studying this very association, and investigating other putative factors involved in the mechanism.
