I am responsible for managing epidemiological studies and clinical trials in urology and chronic kidney disease. My work includes developing strategies for designing national programs to prevent and treat chronic diseases, including chronic kidney disease and nonmalignant urologic conditions.
Other professional activities include overseeing the design, analysis, and interpretation of both randomized clinical trials and observational epidemiologic studies. I am involved with the science and program management of various studies, including: the Chronic Renal Insufficiency Cohort Study; the urinary incontinence treatment network; the Oral versus IV Iron Trial; and the Hemodialysis Fistula Network Cohort Study.
I also provide assistance to NIDDK Project Scientists for the Chronic Kidney Disease Biomarker Consortium; the Multi-Disciplinary Approach to Pelvic Pain Network; and the Lower Urinary Tract Dysfunction Network.
