Hypertension and the associated renal and cardiovascular complications affect a large population and are major causes of chronic kidney disease (CKD). Hypertension causes one-third of CKD. Kidney diseases affect more than 1 of 10 persons in developed countries.
The USF Health Hypertension and Kidney Research Center mission is to progress the understanding of the specific pathways contributing to CKD and hypertension and finding potential treatments for these diseases.
Our members conduct diverse research programs that include bench and translational science addressing the medical needs and treatments related to hypertension and kidney disease.
