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.  

Presentations:

Poster presentation at the 2010 meeting of the North Carolina Academy of Science (NCAS) at Guilford College, Greensboro, NC.

Poster presentation at the Gordon Research Conference – ‘Phosphorylation-mediated signaling networks’ in Biddeford, ME June 2010.
