Research Summary

My clinical interests and expertise are complement mediated renal disease,high risk transplant,parathyroid disorders, and kidney stones.

My contribution to genetic reserch has revelead molecular defect of different phosphate-wasting disorders.These efforts led to the identification of a novel GLUT2  mutations in a consanguineous family with extremely severe,long standing hypophosphametic rickets,but suprisingly without major changes in the regulation of blood sugar. I also participated in molecular genetic studies indentifying novel NPT2c Mutations leading to nephrocalcinosis,and novel potassium channel mutations causing Bartter syndrome.
