Current Research and Scholarly Interests There are great opportunities for new discoveries and for ensuring the reproducibility of scientific results when experimental data—and descriptions of the methods used to generate and analyze those data—are available in public repositories. Our laboratory is studying the development of new methods to aid investigators in creating more comprehensive online descriptions both of their data and of their experiments that can be processed both by other scientists and by computers.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests Hearing is one of the most sensitive functions controlled by thyroid hormone (TH). TH is required for the timely coordination of a complex set of differentiation events in the maturing cochlea. Hypothyroidism retards the differentiation of the cochlea, including synaptogenesis, neurogenesis and myelinogenesis. The mechanisms that prompt the progression of these developmental events are poorly understood. Our preliminary data shows that many genes are differentially regulated by thyroid hormone in the cochlea.
Identifying which of these genes play important roles in cochlear hair cell innervation and synapse formation will further basic understanding about how the auditory system develops. In addition, knowledge of these genes could help devise strategies for stimulating the innervation of newly generated hair cells. To establish or restore hearing, it is vital that newly formed hair cells be connected functionally to the brain. We expect that our research will contribute to this important clinical/translational research effort by identifying genes involved in stimulating innervation and synapse formation.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests A novel approach is used to evaluate glomerular disease in humans, and its progression. A combination of physiologic techniques, a morphometric analysis of glomeruli obtained by biopsy, and mathematical modeling of glomerular ultrafiltration is used to quantify the extent of glomerular injury in humans for the first time.
