  • Dana Y. Fuhrman, D.O., M.S.
    Evaluated renal reserve in children with normal kidney function compared to those with chronic kidney disease by iohexol plasma disappearance.
  • Julie A. Nicoletta, M.D., M.A.
    Showed how a protein munc-18 regulates the movement of proton pumps from the cytoplasm into the apical membrane to mediate renal acidification during acute metabolic acidosis.
  • Megan J. Rashid, M.D., M.P.H.
    Examined left ventricular mass index in children with white-coat hypertension compared with normtensives and hypertensives.
    Megan J. Rashid, M.D., M.P.H.
  • Andrew L. Schwaderer, M.D.
    Evaluated the role of galectin-3 expression in kidney collecting duct intercalated cells during metabolic acidosis.
  • Cornelia Winkler, M.D.
    Examined the role of carbonic anhydrase IV in maturing and adult kidney.
  • Ayesa N. Mian, M.D.
    Examined the effect of metabolic acidosis on kidney function and apical surface of beta intercalated cells in the kidney collecting duct.
