Blazer-Yost Laboratory

BBY Laboratory Group 2018

Welcome to the Blazer-Yost Research Laboratory. Our current research is directed toward finding treatments for two diseases, Hydrocephalus and Polycystic Kidney Disease. Both of these diseases involve abnormal control of fluid and salt homeostasis.

We utilize preclinical animal models as well as cultured cell lines to understand the biochemical basis of the disease development and to uncover potential drug targets within the intracellular signaling pathways.
