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; 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, the Lower Urinary Tract Dysfunction Network, and the Prevention of Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms Network, as well as scientific and administrative support to the Hemodialysis Novel Therapies Study Group and the Pilot Clinical Trial in Chronic Kidney Disease Consortium.
