    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse overview
    Dr. Hopp attempts to understand, through her research, the underlying pathomechanisms driving autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) progression. Specifically, she investigates genetic mechanisms driving phenotypic heterogeneity amongst patients by studying different murine models and by sequencing human samples. She also studies the renal cystic microenvironment to better understand the role of immune cells in ADPKD pathogenesis. Through this research, Dr. Hopp aims to identify novel pathways that can be translated into either pre-clinical or clinical trials geared to alleviate disease burden.
