Research Interests

My research interests are primarily focused on diseases of the kidney caused by abnormalities in the complement system, specifically atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome (aHUS), C3 Glomerulopathy (C3G), and Membranoproliferative Glomerulonephritis (MPGN). These interests are focused on development and improvement of blood tests that are used to diagnose these diseases, as well as clinical trials in new medications being developed to treat these diseases. I also have a clinical research interest in the wide variety of kidney diseases that have a genetic cause, especially cystic kidney diseases but also tubular diseases like Bartter syndrome and Gitelman syndrome, and glomerular diseases like Alport syndrome.

Specialty Information

Specialties
  • Pediatric Nephrology, Board Certification (2008)
  • Pediatrics, Board Certification (2002, 2012)
Conditions & Treatments
  • Kidneys and Urinary System - Proteinuria
  • Kidneys and Urinary System
  • Kidneys and Urinary System - Polycystic Kidney Disease
  • Kidneys and Urinary System - Nephropathy (Nephrosis)
  • Kidneys and Urinary System - Kidney Disease
Clinical Interests
One of my primary clinical interests focuses on the ways in which the complement system, a series of proteins within the immune system, can cause kidney diseases in children and adults. I also have a strong clinical interest in the large number of kidney conditions that have a genetic cause.

Care Philosophy
I treat patients the way I would want my own family to be treated by a health care provider. I strive to take as much time as needed to listen to the patient's and family's concerns, and explain the condition as well as testing and treatment options.
