The Division of Nephrology has research faculty members based at Stanford University and the Veterans Affairs Palo Alto Health Care with active research programs in basic, translational, and clinical science. Emeritus faculty also contribute to the research and educational missions of the Division. In addition, the Division has close ties and shared training with the Division of Pediatric Nephrology at Lucille Packard Children’s Hospital, whose full-time faculty members also have dynamic research programs.
The Division’s clinical research programs are active and growing rapidly. In his research program, Glenn Chertow, MD, applies principles of clinical epidemiology, health services research, decision sciences and clinical trials to major problems in acute and chronic kidney disease (CKD).
