Graduate Student, Section of Nephrology
Nathanael is a graduate student in the Pharmacology program at Baylor College of Medicine. He is actively engaged in dissecting the role of one carbon metabolism in renal cell carcinoma.
Instructor, Section of Nephrology
Galvan is interested in understanding the contribution of mitochondrial derived reactive oxygen species to the pathogenesis of diabetic nephropathy. Additionally, he is engaged in linking obesity to tumor initiation and progression processes in renal cell carcinoma.
Non-coding RNA Team
Assistant Professor, Section of Nephrology
Long has a long standing interest in understanding the role of non-coding RNAs (microRNA and IncRNAs) in the pathogenesisi and progression of Dioabetic Nephropathy. He is currently exploring the consequences of in vivo targeting of a novel IncRNA, Tug 1, in the diabetic millieu.
Postdoctoral Fellow, Section of Nephrology
Badal is focusing on the role of noncoding RNAs in diabetic nephropathy. He has recently characterized the role of miR-93 on DN progression in vivo and revealed that miR-93 can medicate chromatin remodeling by targeting the histone kinase, Msk2.
