Olabisi Lab

The Mission of our lab is to discover fundamental mechanisms by which APOL1 dysregulates normal cellular function,with the goal of preventing and curing APOL1-mediated kidney disease.

Our Research

To Understand the mechanisms by which APOL1 cause kidney disease and discover novel prevention and cure for
APOL1-mediated kidney disease, we leverage several research strategies.

Basic Research

Human stem cell models and APOL1-transgenic mouse model enable investigation of disease mechanisms and drug discovery

Translational Research

Human-derived tissues and data inform the study of disease penetrance and drug discovery

Clinical Research

Community-engaged clinical trials enable us to translate fundamental discoveries to impactful interventions
