My laboratory studies how the retina takes visual information about the world and transmits it to the brain. We are trying to understand how this signaling responds to changing amounts of background light and becomes dysfunctional in diabetes.

The broad goal of Katalin Gothard's research is to understand the neural basis of emotion and social behavior. Her lab work reveals the real-time dynamic interactions in multiple systems implicated in emotion regulation and the mechanisms by which emotional responses produce immediate behavioral effects.

Our lab is focused on the development of novel peptides to inhibit this inflammatory cascade and improve brain blood flow. These peptides are designed to significantly improve serum half-life and penetrate the blood-brain-barrier. These peptides act to inhibit the inflammatory pathways at both the level of brain blood vessels and the brain itself.

Precise diagnosis and treatment of disease requires an ability to target agents to specific tissues and cell types within those tissues. We are developing agents that exhibit cell type specificity for these purposes.

The kidney plays a critical role in clearing the body of potentially harmful compounds, including many commonly prescribed drugs. Unfortunately, this also sets the kidney up as a site where multiple drugs can interact in unwanted ways. We study the cellular transport processes responsible for renal drug clearance with the intent of developing predictive models that can assist clinicians, drug companies, and the Food & Drug Administration in their efforts to increase patient safety.
