Extensive Research Description

Dr. Wilson uses epidemiologic and translational research methods to characterize predictors of outcomes in patients with both chronic kidney disease and acute kidney injury. In addition, he uses advanced machine-learning techniques to identify which patients are most likely to respond to a given intervention. These models can reduce the number of individuals exposed to a drug or intervention unnecessarily, reducing adverse events, and lowering costs.
