Dr. Carey's research is directed to understanding the pathophysiologic mechanisms of hypertension. He is studying the function of dopamine and angiotensin receptors in the kidney , heart and peripheral blood vessels. His laboratory has pioneered the discovery of the function of renal D1-like receptors and angiotensin AT2 receptors. Current projects involve the role of AT2 receptors in sodium excretion and hypertension; the interaction of dopamine receptors with angiotensin receptors within the kidney , the role of extracellular renal cyclic GMP in pressure-natriuresis and the role of urinary angiotensinogen as a marker for activation of the intrarenal renin-angiotensin system. Dr. Carey is a world renowned cardiovascular endocrinologist and currently is President of The Endocrine Society.
