    Study of the mechanisms of the assembly and function of collagen IV networks and their dysfunction in normal kidney and in three different renal diseases (Goodpasture disease, Alport syndrome and diabetic nephropathy). A second major area of my research interest is focused on the etiology of Goodpasture autoimmune disease, with an emphasis on the molecular structure and properties of the human autoantibodies and the collagen IV autoantigen.

    My current research has been focused on identifying the evolutionary origin and developmental importance of an extracellular matrix triad—a sulfilimine-crosslinked collagen IV scaffold, peroxidasin, and hypohalous acids—within tissues from Human to Hydra. My future research will revolve around tissue regeneration from the context of the basement membrane toolkit and studying the role of microRNAs within the anemone, Nematostella, which can regenerate completely into two animals when severed completely in half.
