Evans Laboratory

Cardiovascular and Renal Physiology

Welcome to the Evans Lab

We combine experimental physiology, computational modelling and clinical research to try to find ways to improve management of patients to prevent and treat acute kidney injury and chronic kidney disease.

We're part of the Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute, and a member of the Cardiovascular Disease; Metabolism, Diabetes & Obesity and Neuroscience Program and the Department of Physiology.

Our research

Hypoxia in the kidney is recognized as a critical pathway in development of both acute kidney injury and chronic kidney disease. To avoid renal hypoxia we must be able to detect it and then take steps to alleviate it. We combine the use of experimental and computational physiology to answer these questions. We then collaborate with our clinical partners to introduce new ways to detect and avoid kidney hypoxia in patients.

  • Urinary oxygen tension: A new biomarker of risk of acute kidney injury?

  • Kidney oxygenation during cardiopulmonary bypass: How do we avoid renal hypoxia and acute kidney injury?

  • Regulation of kidney oxygenation when acute kidney injury progresses to chronic kidney disease
