Robin Maser, PhD

Assistant Professor
Department of Clinical Laboratory Sciences


Robin Maser, PhD, directs graduate courses in molecular biotechnology, including molecular techniques and its associated laboratory component. In addition to teaching in the clinical laboratory science department as assistant professor, Maser holds a joint appointment in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in the KU School of Medicine. She also produces novel studies in the area of polycystic kidney disease (PKD) – her work intersecting with KU's Kidney Institute. Learn more about her work at her laboratory website.

Academic Background
Maser earned a bachelor's in biology and chemistry from William Jewell College in Liberty, Mo., in 1980. She obtained her doctoral and post-doctoral training in biochemistry and molecular biology at the University of Kansas Medical Center.

Research Focus
The principal investigator in the Maser Lab, Maser's research is centered on understanding the pathobiology of polycystic kidney disease. In particular, she and her team are investigating the potential role that oxidant stress may play in the pathogenesis of PKD. They are also interested in the structure-function relationships of the protein polycystin-1 – a product of the PKD1 gene that is most commonly mutated in those with PKD.
