Congratulations to Pamela Kling, MD, on her recent award of $59,875 from the UW Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education. This one-year Fall Competition award for her project entitled, "Cellular Signaling and Disordered Nephrogenesis during Intrauterine Growth Restriction," will allow her lab to determine the developmental changes in expression of renin-angiotensin system (RAS), iron, and multi-ligand endocytic receptors using immunoimaging of third trimester ovine fetal kidneys, and if these receptors co-localize in intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR). The study's impact will be to better define renal RAS signal transduction, in order to help design future strategies that prevent hypertension in IUGR offspring.
