  Purpose
Originally, to determine whether genetic alterations in pathways of sodium ion transport in the red blood cells of children could predict their risk of developing primary hypertension in adulthood. In 1992, the objective was to determine the genetic basis of interindividual variation in the risk of essential hypertension in the population at large using the Rochester Family Heart Study.
