Biography

My clinical, educational, administrative, and scholarly efforts are centered on solid organ transplantation.  While the majority of this effort focuses on kidney transplantation, I provide subspecialty consultative services to the liver, heart, and bone marrow transplant programs.  As the Transplant Nephrology Fellowship Program Director, I established the required policies, procedures, and documents required to establish this program. The program is accredited through the American Society of Transplantation.  Yale is one of 62 accredited programs in the US.  Approved by the Yale Office of Graduate Medical Education, The Yale Transplant Nephrology Fellowship Program has graduated 5 fellows.  My scholarly activities range from an Investigator-Initiated Research project investigating the neurocognitive impairments associated with the tacrolimus, the cornerstone immunosuppressant used to prevent rejection in solid organ transplant recipients.  In addition, I am the Principal Investigator for pharmaceutical sponsored clinical trials on immune tolerance, BK viremia, and delayed progression of diabetic kidney disease.
