I am a nephrologist–a kidney specialist who treats adult kidney diseases, high blood pressure and electrolyte disturbances. My special interest is in kidney diseases associated with cancer or brought on by cancer therapies. I am a member of onco-nephrology forum of American Society of Nephrology. This forum is an advisory group for general nephrologists to help them treat patients with cancer who develop concomitant kidney problems. It is also a forum for other nephrologists with special interest in cancer associated kidney diseases to exchange ideas and collaborate on research.
My research interests include identification, characterization and treatment of kidney-related side effects of conventional as well as new targeted cancer therapies. I’m also interested in early detection of chemotherapy-induced acute kidney injury using novel urine biomarkers.
