Our commitment

We are fully committed to substantively changing the lives of our kidney patients through transformative and innovative research, by translating our bench-to-bedside research into state of the art care, and guiding policy development.

Our extensive collaborations and partnerships with complementary fields such as bioengineering, pharmaceutics, immunology, pathology, public health, epidemiology, biostatistics, health care services and other disciplines serve as the foundation for our comprehensive approach to treating kidney disease and its accompanying complications. 

Advancing the field through funded research grants

Nephrology faculty are funded by individual grants as well as major program project grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), numerous other government and nongovernmental entities, and foundations. Seven junior faculty members currently have career development grants (NIH K-awards), and we have a strong record of transitioning to independent NIH R01 awards. In the last academic year, 80% of all submitted proposals were funded. We are proud to have an active NIH T-32 training grant in the Division for over 20 years.
