Current Responsibilities & Activities

I am deputy director for clinical science in the Division of Kidney, Urologic, and Hematologic Diseases (KUH); therefore, my grant portfolio responsibilities encompass oversight of clinical research awards for the Division.  Our research focuses on studies of renal and genitourinary physiology and pathophysiology, as well as treatment trials for kidney diseases and genitourinary dysfunction in adults and children.

As Program Director for Pediatric Nephrology, my portfolio includes interdisciplinary research into normal kidney and urinary tract function in children; cell and organ injury; nephrotoxins and disease; congenital and hereditary disorders; as well as treatment interventions for physical, biochemical, and behavioral abnormalities related to pediatric kidney disease.  Specific areas of interest include, but are not limited to, pediatric acute and chronic kidney disease resulting from cystic kidney disease, renal dysplasia, congenital nephrotic syndrome, Alport syndrome, Bartter syndrome, focal segmental glomerulosclerosis, IgA nephropathy, and hemolytic uremic syndrome.

I also serve as program director for Kidney Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) programs.
