The research objective of Stephen T. Turner, M.D. is to identify genetic factors that contribute to interindividual differences in blood pressure in the human population.
His aim is to assess whether knowledge about variation in genes will improve the ability to predict risk of hypertension, development of hypertensive complications, or response to therapeutic or preventative interventions beyond what is provided by measurement of traditional biochemical, physiologic, or anthropomorphic predictor traits. The use "top-down" (i.e., phenotype-to-genotype) and "bottom-up" (i.e., genotype-to-phenotype) strategies are applied to identify genes involved in the control of blood pressure, complications and responses to therapy.
