Opportunities for clinical research are available with current areas of interest including dialysis, hypertension, transplant immunosuppression, renal osteodystrophy and renal-endocrine interactions.
Our mission statement is to promote exceptional care for patients with renal diseases by maintaining high standards for education & enhancing the skills, knowledge and professional competence of our trainees and nephrologists; to engage in biomedical research related to the kidney, kidney disorders and renal replacement therapies & transplantation; and to improve the delivery of nephrology healthcare in the community.
Renal disease is an epidemic in the Southeastern US. Leading causes of kidney failure are high blood pressure and diabetes. At the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University, we have scientists and clinicians working to find cures and therapies to reduce kidney failure and improve access to transplantation.
Your support is critical to our success. Please join the effort to support renal research.
