About Khalid M. Elased

My current research interests focus on:

1. Understanding and manipulating the Renin-Angiotensin System (RAS) relevant to hypertension and diabetes. 
2. Use of MALDI- TOF-MS and  SELDI-TOF-MS to develop and optimize miniaturized novel assays for quantitative evaluation of localized and circulating RAS. 
3. Our recent work focused on the development of urinary Angiotensin Converting Enzyme (ACE2 ) and neprilysin (NEP) as biomarkers for early detection of Chronic Kidney Disease in diabetic patients.

Our laboratory uses radio telemetry, confocal microscopy, western blot and enzyme assay to investigate the effect of hyperglycemia on blood pressure, renal RAS and progression of CKD in murine model of diabetes and hypertension.

Previous research interests were focused on extraction, purification and characterization of insulin mimetic molecules from Plasmodium yoelii. These molecules are related to Glycosylphosphatiylinositos (GPIs) which could have a potential as new antidiabetic agents.

Research is funded by NHLBI, American Heart Association, WSU Boonshoft School of Medicine.
