I am very excited to have an opportunity to contribute to kidney knowledge and, hopefully, to the improvement of kidney health in the long term.
As someone with training in both nephrology and immunology I am very interested in the intersection of the two specialties.
There is a huge potential for discovery, and for benefiting our patients, in researching this area.
I hope that the data from this research project will be used to develop interventions to improve cardiovascular care delivery and educational initiatives to enhance patient participation in cardiovascular risk factor reduction strategies.
Since my time as an intern, I've always had a passion for teaching.
