Research Summary

Under the Moeckel Lab, I study the molecular mechanisms of acute kidney injury and tubular cell regeneration and the role of intrinsic progenitor cells in repair of acute kidney injury. Moreover, the lab studies the underlying factors that lead to progression of acute kidney injury to chronic kidney disease.

Extensive Research Description

Studies include :

1) The effect of cytokines DDT and Mif20 in acute tubular injury repair and regeneration.

2) The effect of the cytokines DDT and Mif20 in preventing Ferroptosis, a novel mechanism of cell death, in Ischemia Reperfusion Injury of proximal tubular cells.
