Our researchers are on the cutting-edge of investigating the causes and potential therapies for kidney diseases with a particular focus in research involving tuberous sclerosis complex. Through their work, researchers are better able to understand how these diseases have a unique effect on the pediatric population.
- Basic and clinical research to understand the fundamental underpinnings of tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) renal disease
- Treatments to preserve renal function for vulnerable TSC population
- Neonatal nephrology
- Pathophysiology of sickle cell nephropathy
- How APOL1 risk alleles influence the development of this disease in patients with sickle cell anemia
- Application of engineering principles to nephrology with ongoing research in sensors
- Onco-nephrology and hypertension
- IgA nephropathy and Henoch-Schönlein purpura (HSP)
