He was a tenure-track investigator at the NIA Laboratory of Cardiovascular Science and since 2011 he is a tenured Senior Investigator. His goals are to investigate pathophysiologic mechanisms and to identify novel therapeutic targets in age-associated salt-sensitive hypertension, hypertension in chronic kidney disease, and preeclampsia. He is studying mechanisms by which endogenous Na/K-ATPase inhibitors regulate renal sodium transport, exert pro-hypertensive effects and induce vascular fibrosis and stiffness. He is also working on development of approaches to pharmacological antagonism of deleterious effects of cardiotonic steroids including development of therapeutic monoclonal antibodies. Dr. Bagrov has published more than 100 scientific papers.
