My research focuses on leveraging electronic health records and genetics to enhance our understanding and treatment of resistant hypertension. By identifying patients within Vanderbilt's BioVU that have resistant hypertension we intend to test specific genetic variants to potentially identify a novel antihypertensive therapeutic. I am also using the population to determine if there are genetic predictors that predispose patients to attenuated responses to specific antihypertensive therapies.
