Research Areas

Chronic Kidney Disease

The common final pathway to chronic kidney disease involves renal inflammation and fibrosis.

Acute Kidney Disease

We are studying inflammation in acute kidney injury.

Aging Kidney

Aging is associated with structural and functional changes leading to kidney dysfunction.

Mitochondria

Mitochondrial dysfunctions are the hallmark of a variety of diseases including kidney disease, cancer, diabetes and age-related diseases.

Center for Renal Precision Medicine

The major goal of the Center for Renal Precision Medicine (CRPM) is the development of new insights into kidney diseases to fundamentally change patient care.

Oxidative Stress & Signaling

Aging is associated with structural and functional changes leading to kidney dysfunction.

Clinical Research & Trials

Two landmark multi-center clinical trials are actively performed in the Division, including the Diabetes Prevention Program Outcomes Study (DPPOS) and look AHEAD (Action for the Health in Diabetes).
