Renal iron handling in health and disease. Specifically, current projects include investigating the role of distal tubular iron loading in progression of proteinuric kidney disease, studying the potential protective effect of hepcidin in iron-mediated acute kidney injury and elucidating uptake and potential harmful effects of hemoglobin in distal tubular epithelial cells.
