Research The Nephrology Division has an active research enterprise. We currently have several principal investigators who have been awarded a number of NIH grants. Additionally we support clinical study nurses to do clinical research, some of which is sponsored by industry. The emphasis on research leads to a large number of publications in excellent, peer reviewed journals. Below are listed the investigators with appreciable non-industry funding. David A.
