Project 1: The Aging Kidney: Chronic Injury, Impaired functions, and Clinical Outcomes

The research is designed to explore the pathways leading to age-related kidney decline within the nephron, to determine whether the underlying structural damage affect the kidney’s other important functions that decline with age and to find out why reduced estimated GFR is so strongly and independently associated with adverse outcomes in elders

Project 2: CKD-Targeted Analyses of the Jackson Heart Study

The major goals of this project are to develop a highly-functioning CKD working group composed of national experts in health disparities, CKD epidemiology research, and CKD biostatistics. The aims of this group will be to develop a research agenda that will evaluate novel and traditional risk factors for CKD and the interrelation of CKD with CVD among African Americans enrolled in Jackson Heart Study. We further aim to improve on the current risk profile for CKD progression among participants of the Jackson Heart Study.
