Research Interest
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).
