Principal Investigator: David H. Ellison

The Ellison Lab at the Oregon Health and Science University in Portland, Oregon is dedicated to seeking answers to timely questions about human hypertension and kidney disease. His internationally recognized group works at the interface between clinical and basic science. Theyuse a multidisciplinary approach, incorporating molecular-cell biology, biochemistry, 3D imaging,and state of the art phenotyping in genetically engineered mouse models animal models to determine how potassium prevents hypertension, how the kidney senses potassium, how gene mutations cause hypertension, how aldosterone damages the heart and kidney.
