With long-standing expertise in genetics and genetic epidemiology of hypertension and in pathogenetic mechanisms of hypertension, his major research interests are in demonstrating increased renal Na reabsorption before the development of some forms of human and rat hypertension, demonstrating the role of adducin in the development of salt sensitive hypertension in humans and rats, developing of bioinformatics techniques for block detection and haplotype reconstruction and developing simplified tests for definition of salt sensitivity in humans.
