The Mathis Laboratory

The Research Laboratory of Dr. Keisa Williams Mathis



Welcome to the Mathis Laboratory website! We are excited to share our research interests and goals with you here. You can also hear more about our accomplishments by liking us on Facebook and follow Dr. Mathis while on her journey through academia on Twitter.

The overall goal of the Mathis Laboratory is to determine mechanisms involved in the pathogenesis of hypertension and renal injury.  A strength of the lab is the study of both new and established neuro-immune mechanisms that may contribute to the development and maintenance of hypertension. Our lab utilizes the novel disease model, systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) or lupus, to study the links between the nervous system, immune system/inflammation, and the kidney/blood pressure regulation.  We are confident that studies in our lab will lead to a better understanding of both hypertension AND lupus.

The Mathis Laboratory is a part of the Institute for Cardiovascular and Metabolic Disease at the University of North Texas Health Science Center.
