My research interests have centered on pharmacologic and dialytic strategies to reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with kidney failure. As an Executive Committee Member and /or a Site Investigator for the VA’s Cooperative Studies Program, I have conducted clinical trials targeting vascular access preservation and renal and cardiovascular risk reduction in chronic kidney disease, and all-cause mortality in acute kidney injury.
