Biography: 

Research Interests:

We are studying kidney development in babies born prematurely and whether the use of medications such as indomethacin and gentamicin affect nephronogenesis.  We are using stereological methods  and a rat model to help answer these questions.

Additional studies are investigating the role of COX in kidney development and the pathophysiology of acute kidney injury.

Research Activities: 

Kidney development in premature babies

Other Area(s) of Research: 

Gene mapping for inherited kidney disease in the Hutterite population; development of a national database of children with IgA nephropathy and Henoch Schonlein Purpura
