Delpire Lab

Principal Investigator: Eric Delpire

The Delpire Lab at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Nashville, Tennessee investigates the basic mechanisms of ion and water homeostasis in the kidney and nervous systems with a focus on electroneutral cation-chloride cotransporters and the kinases that regulate them. His internationally recognized laboratory utilizes molecular & biochemical approach, cellular physiology techniques, and genetically modified mouse models to understand how phosphorylation regulates the cotransporters, and how human mutations that arise in the transporters affect cellular and body homeostasis.
