Our laboratory studies kidney injury and repair using a variety of mouse models. We are currently focusing on the function and molecular regulation of epithelial autophagy. We have shown that following urinary tract obstruction or ischemic injury to the kidney, autophagy is activated in a regulated and dynamic fashion for renal tubular survival and repair. A stress-responsive transcription factor FoxO3 plays an important role in regulating the stress response during the acute injury and the progression to chronic kidney disease. Our goal is to use the knowledge learned from animal studies to help design methods that integrate modulation of autophagy into prevention and treatment for human kidney disease.
