Overview

My research is focused on determining the impact of chronic viral infections and cancer on kidney function.

I study the effect of Hepatitis C Virus, Human Immunodeficiency Virus, and COVID-19 on the progression of chronic kidney disease through clinical and translational investigation in patients with these diseases. I am the clinical lead investigator of the MYTHIC trial (NCT03781726) and a co-investigator in the THINKER-NEXT trial (NCT04075916) which transplant Hepatitis C infected kidneys into Hepatitis C uninfected kidney transplant waitlist recipients followed by direct-acting antiviral therapy.

I also study how cancer therapies affect kidney function. Cancer immunotherapies such as immune checkpoint inhibitors and chimeric antigen receptor T cell therapy (CAR-T) have revolutionized cancer therapy, but can cause kidney injury in patients with cancer. Our team uses clinical and translational research studies to uncover risk factors, mechanisms of kidney injury, and best-practices for diagnosis and management of kidney injury in patients receiving cancer immunotherapy. I am an Assistant Professor at Harvard Medical School and the Director of Onconephrology at Massachusetts General Hospital with 75% of my time dedicated to research. I maintain an active clinical presence with 20% clinical and 5% teaching effort.
