Grant number: 1029396 | Funding period: 2012 - 2015



Angiotensin is important for normal regulation of blood pressure but is also involved in cardiovascular diseases. Interruption of angiotensin’s actions is a common treatment of these diseases. Functional deletion of angiotensin receptors decreases blood pressure. Surprisingly the site(s) in the body responsible for this decrease are not known. We will examine the role of angiotensin receptors in the brain in the control of blood pressure in health and in cardiovascular disease.
