Extensive Research Description
Dr. Mansour uses translational and epidemiological research methods to characterize the role of repair biomarkers in the development of long-term outcomes in patients with acute kidney injury.
Dr. Mansour was the recipient of T32-DK7276-40 Institutional Grant (T32) from the National Institute of Diabetes, Digestive, and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), as well as a Career Development Grant (18CDA34110151) from the American Heart Association (AHA), Robert Leet Patterson and Clara Guthrie Patterson Trust Mentored Research Award, O'Brien Kidney Pilot Grant and NIH/NIDDK K23 award.
Current Research Projects:
