Clinical & Translational Science
My group is interested in the genetic factors that influence inflammation and clinical outcomes among patients with kidney failure treated with maintenance hemodialysis. We are also interested in understanding the prevalence of somatic mitochondrial DNA deletion mutations and their impact on mitochondrial function and clinical outcomes in patients with chronic kidney disease and in patients who have post-transplant diabetes or impaired glucose tolerance.
