Current Research:  My research focuses on Pyk2, an acid-activated protein in the medullary collecting duct.  We hypothesize that in response to small decreases in systemic pH, this protein activates a MAPK signaling pathway that regulates H+ transport across the apical membrane of Type A (acid-secreting) intercalated cells.
