Biographical Information
Dr. Yosypiv received his M.D. in Pediatrics from the Medical University of Lviv, Ukraine in 1984. He was a research fellow with Dr. Samir El-Dahr at Tulane in 1992-1996 and was then a Research Instructor at Tulane Pediatrics. In 1997-2000 he completed Residency training in Pediatrics and is currently a Fellow in Pediatric Nephrology at Tulane. The primary theme of Dr. Yosypiv's research is elucidation of the role of the kallikrein-kinin and renin-angiotensin systems in kidney developmental growth and hypertension. Ongoing studies are being conducted on the cross-talk of the above systems in renal development.
