    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse overview
    I am a dual-trained physician-scientist and practicing pediatric nephrologist. My lab uses a ttranslational approach to investigate mechanisms of renal injury and repair with a focus on acute kidney injury and the transition to chronic kidney disease.

    Relative Oliguria as a Risk Factor for Volume Overload in Critically Ill Children
    Role Description: The goal of this study is to define the concept of relative oliguria and determine its utility as early and sensitive predictor of volume overload and related morbidity and mortality in critically ill children.
    Role: PI

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
