Dr. Wilson's research focuses on the epidemiology of chronic kidney disease and acute kidney injury. He has a particular interest in the development and application of personalized medicine techniques to target the proper therapy to the proper patient. He pursues interventional studies to try to help patients live longer, happier lives.

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.
Dr. Wilson was the recipient of a Ruth L Kirschstein national service award (F32) as well as a career development award (K23) from the National Institute of Diabetes, Digestive, and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), as well as multiple other grants.
