Dr. Shabina Rehman PhD is a full time researcher at University of West Virginia, Morgantown, WV. Dr.
Rehman has achieved a unique ability in her field of ?Cellular Injury/Defense Responses? research. Dr.
Rehman has made critical contributions on cardio-protective effects and mechanisms of beetroot juice, a nonalcoholic
wine alternative, in cardiac arrests. Dr. Rehman?s also provided a critical evidence for the
investigations in Alcohol-Vitamin D-T Cell defense axis that not only directly influences management
strategies for pathologies of kidney where Vitamin D is metabolized but also in immune conditions like HIV
where T cell numbers are drastically reduced and consequent effector immune response is compromised
(http://pubs.niaaa.nih.gov/publications/arh333/203-218.htm). HIV remains a major, ever changing and critical
factor that alters normal renal functioning through HIV Associated Nephropathy (HIVAN). Dr. Rehman has
made additional and significant contributions on mechanistic and interventional significance of mTOR in HIV
associated Vascular Nephropathy (HIVAN).
