Dr. Oliver is working in the laboratory to provide analysis of molecular mechanisms involved in renal vascular development and the isolation of growth factors and adhesion molecules involved in this process. Oliver's clinical research is focused on analysis of mechanisms involved in vasodilation of shock.
