Kidney Clinical Research and Epidemiology

The Kidney Clinical Research and Epidemiology program advances clinical studies and epidemiologic research on renal disease.  The portfolio encompasses the development and analysis of large, national surveillance databases, cross-sectional surveys, prospective observational studies, case-control studies, and randomized controlled clinical trials to evaluate and treat kidney disease.  Key areas of interest include research programs to prevent disease, identifying and validating markers of early disease, and identification of risk factors for morbidity and mortality.  Randomized clinical trials are also conducted to test new therapies to prevent the progression of renal disease and its associated illnesses, such as cardiovascular disease.​​​​​​​​​​​
