      INTERESTS
      Dr. Ku's research focuses primarily on hypertension and its long-term sequelae in populations at high cardiovascular risk (chronic kidney disease and diabetes). In addition, Dr. Ku is also interested in understanding the optimal approach to the care of young patients with pediatric-onset chronic kidney disease as they transition into adulthood.
