Research Interests

Dr. Katharina Hopp obtained her Ph.D. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology with a focus on Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) genetics in 2012 from the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota. She continued her research in PKD as a post-doctoral fellow at the Mayo Clinic Translational PKD Center. Currently, Dr. Hopp is as Assistant Professor at the University of Colorado, Denver, Anschutz Medical Campus, where her lab studies the functional role of immune cells on PKD progression. Specifically, her lab researches the role of T cells in PKD, their interplay with other immune cells and the cystic epithelium, and their impact on cyst initiation and progression. She believes that these studies will provide novel insights into the pathomechanisms of disease/disease heterogeneity, and give rise to new therapeutic approaches.
