    Collapse Overview
    I am a nephrologist with a focus on improving outcomes and care for older and elderly patients. My career goal is to be a pioneer in research at the intersection of aging, nephrology, and transplantation. To that end my current focus has been on prehabilitation in older patients awaiting kidney transplantation.

    Identifying Goals and Barriers to Prehabilitation in End-Stage Renal Disease
    NIH/NIA 1R03AG067981-01Sep 1, 2020 - May 31, 2022
    Role: PI
    Role Description: Nearly 95,000 patients in the United States (of whom more than 65% are 50 years of age or older) are currently awaiting kidney transplantation to treat end-stage renal disease (ESRD), which is a disease of premature aging associated with impairments in functional status and quality of life. Kidney transplantation has the potential to ameliorate some of the detrimental effects of ESRD upon aging but kidney transplantation carries greater risk for older or more impaired patients and furthermore does not completely restore physical function and quality of life - and thus may not meet expectations, particularly for older patients. An exercise intervention for prehabilitation prior to kidney transplantation has the potential to maximize the benefit of transplantation, but for such an intervention to be effective in this population we need to first elucidate the unique facilitators of and barriers to prehabilitation in this population (e.g., fear of falls, caregiver support, effects of polypharmacy) from the perspective of not only older patients themselves, but also their caregivers.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication.
