Research Interest: My research focuses on the brain’s role in the development of elevated blood pressure and reduced baroreflex sensitivity in a sheep model of glucocorticoid induced fetal programming. I am interested in changes in components of the renin-angiotensin system (RAS) and RAS signaling in the brainstem, choroid plexus, and CSF of animals exposed in utero to glucocorticoids. We study offspring at various ages in order to elucidate potential age related changes in addition those induced by glucocorticoid programming.
