Professional Background

Fellowship Director, Pediatric Nephrology
Co-Director, Pediatric Hypertension and Lipid Clinic, URMC


Hypertension is estimated to affect 50 million Americans and is a leading cause of cardiovascular disease, stroke, and kidney disease. Although such morbid events as stroke and myocardial infarction are uncommon in childhood, it is clear that the origins of cardiovascular disease and essential hypertension begin early in life and that hypertensive end-organ damage may occur at a young age. Understanding the early time course in how hypertension affects the susceptible organs is important, so that strategies to prevent the development of target-organ damage can be developed.

Dr. Lande is studying the neurocognitive effects of hypertension in children and determining any potential benefit of antihypertensive therapy on cognition. Since 2010, I have led an NIH-funded multicenter research team including investigators from the University of Rochester, Emory University, Maimonides Medical Center, University of Houston, Texas, and the University of North Carolina. This is a multidisciplinary effort including pediatric nephrologists, cardiologists, and neuropsychologists. He is also the site PI for two clinical research collaborative networks, the Chronic Kidney Disease in Children Study (CKiD) and the Study of Hypertension in Pediatrics – Adults Hypertension Onset in Youth (SHIP AHOY). In addition serves on the Neurocognitive subcommittee for CKiD and the Steering Committee for SHIP AHOY.
