Adebowale Adebiyi, PhD, is a professor in the Department of Medical Pharmacology and Physiology and a NextGen Precision Health Investigator. His research focuses on the pathophysiology of blood vessels and kidneys.

Dr. Adebiyi’s research team utilizes an integrative approach, including molecular, biochemical, electrophysiology, imaging and whole animal methodologies to investigate ion channels, G protein-coupled receptors, oxyradicals and regulatory proteins that control vascular and kidney function. Recent NIH-funded research projects in Dr. Adebiyi’s laboratory use swine models to explore the physiology and pathophysiology of neonatal renal microcirculation.
