Alicia M. McDonough, PhD, will discuss “Inflammatory Cytokines Regulate Proximal and Distal Sodium Transporters” in the Robert W. Schrier, MD, Endowed Lectureship on Friday, Nov. 3.

Dr. McDonough is professor of integrative anatomical sciences at the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California (USC) in Los Angeles. Upon joining the USC faculty in 1981, she began studying the assembly of sodium pump subunits and defining the molecular mechanisms of sodium pump isoform regulation in cardiac and skeletal muscle by potassium and hormones. The McDonough lab initiated studies to determine the renal mechanisms responsible
