Research Activities

Nephrology faculty participate in numerous clinical research projects pertaining to cardiovascular outcomes in chronic kidney disease and transplantation, diabetic nephropathy and anemia of chronic kidney disease. We have a strong relationship with members of the Department of Cellular and Integrative Physiology, who will serve as research mentors for nephrology fellows interested in basic research. Members of Cellular and Integrative Physiology have research interests which include diabetic nephropathy, the renin-angiotensin system, control of renal microvasculature, and cation channels in the nephron.
