Meet the RAAS Analytics Lab Team
Dr. Robin Shoemaker, PhD
Dr. Shoemaker is a biomedical scientist with a PhD in Nutritional Sciences from the University of Kentucky. She is an Early State Investigator currently funded as a K-Scholar for her project investigating the RAAS and ACE2 in pregnancy-hypertension. During her pre- and postdoctoral training, Dr. Shoemaker utilized mouse models to elucidate the function of various components of the RAAS in development of chronic disease. A major focus of her research program is the translation of mechanistic principles of the RAAS to clinical and biomedical research.
