    Collapse Overview
    My research focuses on the early diagnosis of kidney hypoxia, injury, and disease and the influence of cardiovascular disease on kidney disease onset and progression. Clinically, I see patients with all manifestations of hypertension and kidney disease, with a special focus on patients with polycystic kidney disease. I am the medical director of the UCSF PKD Center of Excellence and principal investigator of the UCSF Cardiovascular Risk After Kidney Transplantation (CARAKTER) study.
