Meet Featured Researcher Robert Hoover, Jr., MD. Dr. Hoover is an associate professor of medicine in the Emory Division of Renal Medicine (Nephrology) who studies the regulation of thiazide-sensitive sodium chloride (rNCC) co-transporters in various models of hypertension. His lab currently examines the intracellular mechanisms by which aldosterone and angiotensin regulate rNCC, with the goal of increasing our understanding of the mechanisms that cause hypertension. Hopefully, this knowledge will lead to improved treatment and quality of life for patients affected by kidney disorders.

Learn more about Dr. Hoover and his research in the article “Ion Transporters in the Kidney.”
