Our overall goal is to improve the lives of our patients suffering from kidney disease through patient-oriented research. We use a highly collaborative and interdisciplinary approach to perform observational studies, biomarker discovery/validation, clinical trials, and implementation research.
We conduct research that we hope will directly improve patient care through:
- Early diagnosis, accurate prognosis
- Identifying therapeutic targets
- Conducting randomized controlled trials
- Optimizing care models for patients with kidney disease
