Division faculty are engaged in clinical and basic science research to help advance the care of children with kidney disease.
Our clinical research is focused on:
- molecular regulation of vitamin D and phosphorus metabolism
- novel immunsuppressive treatments for patients undergoing kidney transplantation
- bone and mineral metabolism in patients with chronic kidney disease
- improving treatment outcomes in young patients with chronic kidney disease.
Reseach laboratories at our Parnassus and Laurel Heights campuses support the work of our investigators.
