Renal sensory nerves and hypertension

July 9, 2019

What roles do renal sensory nerves play in a renal-nerve dependent mouse model of hypertension? In this podcast, Editor-in-Chief Bill Yates talks with Jason Ong and Sean Stocker (both from the University of Pittsburgh) about their recent study, which explored this question in 2-Kidney 1-Clip (2K1C) mice. Listen to learn about regulation of arterial blood pressure, potential treatments for hypertension, and more!
