Research Activities

Clinical Research

Our clinical research training activities can be grouped into four major areas:

  1. Treatment & outcomes of acute renal failure
  2. Treatment & outcomes in chronic renal failure and end-stage renal disease
  3. Renal transplantation
  4. Renal thrombotic microangiopathies

Basic Science Research

Members of the division are also actively engaged in basic science research. Our primary areas of interest pertain to the cellular and molecular mechanisms of chronic kidney disease. The three major overlapping themes being explored by our basic science faculty are: 1. Inflammation and response to renal injury, 2. Matrix biology and fibrogenesis, and 3. Vascular biology, atherosclerosis, and angiogenesis.
