Research Interests:

The research program is concerned with the mechanisms and regulation of epithelial transport. Current research deals with transepithelial transport and excretion of environmental pollutants in tissues isolated from the urinary systems of a variety of vertebrates, including rats, birds, and fishes. Work has concentrated on ion secretion and its regulation in primary monolayer cultures of renal epithelium and choroid plexus. The laboratory also studies transport by renal tubule brush border and basolateral membrane vesicles.
