Dr. Pollak’s laboratory studies the molecular and genetic basis of kidney disease in humans. His group uses genetic methods to identify and study the mechanisms of kidney disease genes. His laboratory is experienced in human genetic methods, as well as cell-based studies of podocyte biology and the development and analysis of animal models of kidney disease. Dr. Pollak’s laboratory has a particular interest in the biological mechanisms of APOL1, ACTN4, and INF2-mediated disease.
