Research Description: 

Research in my laboratory focuses on the renin-angiotensin system (RAS) in metabolic and cardiovascular diseases. Since our initial discovery in 1988 that adipocytes express a high level of mRNA abundance for angiotensinogen, the only known precursor to angiotensin II (AngII), my laboratory has been studying the regulation of and functional significance of an adipocyte RAS. These studies have been continuously funded by the NIH since 1988. In 1999, in collaboration with Dr. Alan Daugherty at the University of Kentucky, we made the initial observation that infusion of AngII to hyperlipidemic mice increases atherosclerosis and causes formation of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs). In 2000, we published extensive characterization of AngII-induced AAAs in The Journal of Clinical Investigation, a paper that has been cited in excess of 500 times. Current research in my laboratory in this area focuses on mechanisms for sex differences in AAA formation. I am Project Director of a project within the University of Kentucky Superfund Basic Science Research Program focused on polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). Our research in this area focuses on PCB-induced diabetes, with an interest in the role of adipocyte aryl hydrocarbon receptors as mediators of inflammation and insulin resistance in adipocytes. I have extensive experience administering programs related to obesity and cardiovascular diseases as Director of a multidisciplinary graduate center focused on training nutritional scientists, Chair of a Department of Nutritional Sciences, Chair of the Department of Molecular and Biomedical Pharmacology, and Director of an NIH T32 on Nutrition and Oxidative Stress, and Director of the Phase II NIH Center of Biomedical Research Excellence on Obesity and Cardiovascular Diseases (COCVD).
