Dr. Paul Hoover is a physician-scientist in the Division of Rheumatology at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital with a clinical and research focus on lupus nephritis and related myeloid biology. As an Instructor he has worked at the Broad Institute in the Hacohen laboratory to develop a unique scientific program with the goal of understanding how myeloid cells drive tissue damage in lupus kidneys. His scientific program is composed of three major efforts: 1) identification of associations between novel myeloid states and gene programs with kidney lesions in clinical samples that can be experimentally tested; 2) utilization of lupus mouse models to test hypotheses from studying human samples; 3) identification of genetic drivers of myeloid differentiation, gene programs, and key functions in kidneys using CRISPR screens. Dr. Hoover earned his medical degree and doctorate in cellular physiology from Stanford University School of Medicine. He completed residency training and a fellowship in Rheumatology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.

Kidney Precision Medicine through Interrogation of RNA in the Kidney
Role Description: Develop and apply parallel, complimentary approaches to define human kidney cell type, disease state specific transcriptomic profiles with 2D & 3D tissue spatial characterization.

Mapping disease-specific immune cells in lupus nephritis tissue
Role Description: This project leverages signatures generated from single cell RNA sequencing of lupus nephritis biopsies to map the myeloid cell compartment across tissue from clinical samples. The goal is to define the organizational landscape between myeloid cells, their cellular neighborhood, and histopathologic lesions in order to identify myeloid cell types and immune cell networks associated with tissue damage.
