Dr. Gonzalez-Vicente received a Masterís in Soil and Plant Biochemistry and a Ph.D. in Physiology from the University of Buenos Aires. He joined the Henry Ford Hospital in 2010 as a Research Fellow in the Hypertension and Vascular Research Division. In 2012 joined the Department of Physiology and Biophysics at Case Western Reserve University. Dr. Gonzalez-Vicente has served as a co-investigator on a number of research projects funded by the National Institutes of Health. He has also authored nearly a dozen research articles, 40 conference presentations, and served as reviewer in several research journals.
Dr. Gonzalez-Vicenteís primary research focus in in Systems Biology. We have recently developed the Renal Genomics Portal to compile signaling pathways related to kidney physiology and disease. Part of this effort includes curating and annotating publicly available signaling cascades to adapt them to the different cell types of the nephron. Our Laboratory uses these pathways to analyze transcriptomes and visualize genomic data. We are currently analyzing transcriptome signatures from heart and kidneys of rats on different salt-sensitive hypertension regimes.
