PhD: University of Kentucky (1979)
Postdoctoral Training: Vanderbilt University, Department of Biochemistry, Nashville, TN (1981-1985)
Dr. Kailash Nath Pandey received his Bachelors from Agra university and Master's degree from Kanpur University, India. He received his PhD in Cell Biology from the University of Kentucky in 1979. He carried out postdoctoral studies in the Department of Biochemistry at Vanderbilt University and in 1986 he was appointed as a Research Instructor and in 1987 was promoted to Research Assistant Professor. In 1990 he joined the Medical College of Georgia as an Associate Professor in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. Dr. Pandey joined Tulane in 1997 where he is a Professor and Vice Chair of Medical Research in Physiology. He has received several grants from AHA, including an Established Investigatorship award and continuous multiple NIH grants to study the atrial and brain natriuretic peptides (ANP, BNP) and their cognate membrane guanylyl cyclase-A/natriuretic peptide receptor-A (GC-A/NPRA) in recombinant cells in vitro and genetically altered animal models in vivo. He has served on the Editorial Board of 14 journals, including Endocrinology, Physiological Genomics, and Hypertension and on the study section of AHA, NIH and NSF grant review committees. He has received numerous awards and honors, including Lewis K. Dahl Award from the AHA-Council on Hypertension and Hans-Peter Krayenbuehl award from Int. Academy of Cardiology. He is a member of several societies, including AHA, ASH, APS, ASN, ASBMB, and Endocrinology. The long-term objectives of his research projects are to delineate the molecular basis of natriuretic peptides and their receptor in the regulation of blood pressure and renal and cardiovascular homeostasis.
The primary goal of our research is to determine the genetic and epigenetic molecular basis of hypertension and cardiovascular disorders in age- and sex-dependent manner. The long-term objectives of our research projects are to determine the molecular and cellular action of ANP and BNP that control blood pressure and renal and cardiovascular disorders. Our...
