Current Research and Scholarly Interests Diabetes and hypertension are among the most common diseases treated in the US. The combination of these disease greatly increased the risk of heart attack, stroke, and early death. While over 90% of patients with diabetes have high blood pressure, its cause is unknown. Working in the laboratory of Vivek Bhalla, I am interested in understanding the mechanisms that diabetes contributes to high blood pressure. We current are focused on the regulatory role of insulin on sodium reabsorption in the kidney, which is a master regulator of blood pressure. Using a mouse model of diabetes and transgenic technologies, we utliize classical metabolic experiments, expression, electrophysiological, and primary cell culture techniques to understand the role of insulin in regulating sodium transport in the kidney, blood volume in the body, and increased blood pressure in diabetes.
Rachford and Carlota Harris Professor
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Nolan's group uses high throughput single cell analysis technology cellular biochemistry to study autoimmunity, cancer, virology (influenza & Ebola), as well as understanding normal immune system function. Using advanced flow cytometric techniques such as Mass Cytometry, MIBI (ion beam imaging), CODEX and computational biology approaches, we focus on understanding disease processes at the single cell level. We have a strong interest in cancer immunotherapy and pathogen-host interactions.
