Current Research

The focus of my research is the natural history, pathogenesis, and treatment of immunologically mediated glomerular diseases particularly  membranous nephropathy. The goal of my research is to find novel ways to suppress autoimmune responses that lead to kidney disease as well as to find more sensitive methods to monitor disease activity.

Research in Plain Language

I study new combinations of agents that reduce the activity of the immune system to treat individuals with immune-mediated kidney disease in which  kidney cells are damaged by immune responses or inflammation.
