Research

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.
