End-Stage Renal Disease

The End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) program promotes basic, translational, and clinical research to reduce morbidity and mortality from kidney failure or ESRD and to improve the effectiveness of dialysis and transplantation.  The portfolio includes studies on factors associated with fistula maturation, complications of grafts for vascular access, appropriate dialysis dose, and infectious complications in peritoneal dialysis.  Studies also are promoted on the causes and prevention of progressive loss of kidney function in long-term kidney transplant recipients.​​
