Research Description

Dr. Bhave is interested in the assembly and function of basement membranes and extracellular matrix particularly in renal disease. By studying matrix biochemistry at a fundamental level, he hopes to gain insight into renal glomerular and tubulointerstitial fibrosis which represents the common final pathway to injury in nearly all kidney diseases. His group utilizes cell culture systems, molecular biology, biochemistry, mass spectrometry, and mouse genetics to answer questions of interest.
