Discipline/Expertise:Our research examines altered control of blood pressure and heart rate in disease conditons. Much of our work focusses on chronic kidney disease. We study the activity of sympathetic nerves, changes in heart rate and blood pressure and how the brain controls these functions. We are also interested in hormonal systems that control blood pressure.
Other studies with our collaborators including studying chronic pain and how innervation patterns on sympathetic and sensory nerves in the skin may be altered
