VITOUX Distinguished Research Lecture by Dr. Lawrence Appel

The Health Effects of Dietary Sodium and Potassium Intake: Public Health and Clinical Implications

Dr. Appel is the Director of the Welch Center for Prevention, Epidemiology and Clinical Research, a large interdisciplinary research unit that bridges the Schools of Medicine and Public Health at Hopkins.  The mission of the Welch Center is to conduct epidemiologic, clinical and translational research of the highest quality and to train the next generation of interdisciplinary researchers. He has conducted clinical research with a particular focus on preventing and controlling elevated blood pressure, and its consequences, primarily cardiovascular and kidney diseases. He has four active lines of research: (1) controlled feeding studies, (2) behavioral intervention trials, that test novel strategies to accomplish lifestyle changes, often related to obesity, (3) cohort studies and trials related to chronic kidney disease and its consequences, and (4) global implementation initiatives to prevent and control hypertension. A notable feature of his research is the focus on conditions and diseases that disproportionately afflict minorities and on interventions that have the potential to substantially reduce racial disparities. Over the course of his career, he has mentored numerous students, fellows, and faculty (and continues to do so).  In addition, he serves as Associate Director of the Renal Disease Epidemiology T32 training grant at Hopkins.
