Andrey Sorokin, PhD
Professor of Medicine
Dr. Sorokin's research is focused on mechanisms of initiation and progression of proliferative kidney diseases. Research in his laboratory is primarily focused on 1) understanding the role of endothelin signaling in hypertension induced nephropathy and proliferative glomerulonephritis; 2) cellular regulation of prostaglandin production with an emphasis on regulation of Cox-2 activity on the level of catalysis by proteins spatially co-localized with the enzyme in its natural environment; 3) elucidation of BK virus entry pathways and prevention of polyomavirus nephropathy after renal transplantation.
