Dr. Michael Adams and Dr. Rachel Holden (Division of Nephrology, Department of Medicine) run a collaborative research laboratory.  The long term goal of our research is to contribute to a greater understanding of the causes and consequences of cardiovascular disease, particularly with respect to how chronic kidney disease greatly accelerates the disease progression. In addition, an overall goal is to apply this knowledge to the development and implementation of new therapeutic strategies for prevention and treatment of the pathological outcomes.
