Clinical Research

Message from Director Dr. Tara Chang

The Division of Nephrology has a vibrant and diverse clinical research program, which applies principles of clinical epidemiology, health services research, global health, decision sciences and clinical trials to major problems in acute kidney injury, chronic kidney disease, end-stage kidney disease, kidney transplant, immunology, hypertension and kidney stones.

Our faculty have active collaborations with groups within Stanford University, as well as with leading US institutions and worldwide.  We are also unique in having a dedicated Biostatistics Core embedded within the Division of Nephrology, who support the faculty and trainees in all aspects of the clinical research projects.
