Heddwen Brooks, PhD

Personal Information
Professor, Dept. of Physiology/Pharmacology
Chair, Graduate Interdisciplinary Program
(520) 626-7702

Dr. Heddwen Brooks received her PhD from Imperial College, University of London and did her post-doctoral training at NIH with Dr. Mark Knepper studying the role of vasopressin in regulating renal function and with Dr. Andrea Yool (UA) identifying novel inhibitors for aquaporins. Heddwen is currently Professor of Physiology and Pharmacology, and Chair of the Graduate Interdisciplinary Program in Physiological Sciences, at the University of Arizona.

Heddwen is a renal physiologist and has developed microarray technology to address in vivo signaling pathways involved in the hormonal regulation of renal function. Current areas of research in the Brooks Laboratory are focused on importance of sex differences in the onset of postmenopausal hypertension and diabetic kidney disease and identifying new therapies for polycystic kidney disease and lithium-induced nephropathy. She is a member of the Sarver Heart Center, the Arizona Center on Aging, and BIO5.

Heddwen is very active in the American Physiological Society at a National and International level; she received the prestigious American Physiological Society Lazaro J. Mandel Young Investigator Award (2007) and the American Physiological Society Renal Young Investigator Award (2009) and has served as Chair of the Renal Section of the American Physiological Society. She serves on the Editorial Board of AJP-Renal Physiology as well as on study sections of the National Institutes of Health and the American Heart Association. She is currently an Associate Editor for AJP - Regulatory, Integrative and Comparative Physiology, a member of the American Physiological Society’s Education Committee, and a recent past member of the Nephrology Merit Review Board for the Department of Veterans’ Affairs.

The Antin Lab focuses on understanding the molecular regulation of early developmental processes in vertebrate embryos, primarily the chicken embryo as a model organism. Present projects are focused on mechanisms regulating epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) during gastrulation, endothelial cell development, cardiac myogenesis, and developing genomic and computational tools. The lab hosts the GEISHA high throughput in situ hybridization gene expression project.
