Sophie Claudel
72 E Concord St


Dr. Claudel is a Chief resident in Internal Medicine at Boston Medical Center and is an NIH R38 grant recipient in the Promoting Research in Medical Residency (PRIMER) program. As a resident clinician-investigator, Dr. Claudel uses large secondary datasets to examine the epidemiology of chronic kidney disease (CKD) at the national level and is simultaneously developing a clinical cohort to characterize Boston-area disparities in CKD progression using geospatial analyses. Her research interests are in preventing CKD progression, understanding the relationships between kidney, cardiovascular, and metabolic conditions, and using implementation science approaches to improve outcomes in CKD. Dr. Claudel is additionally involved in the CURE Consortium, a multinational research group studying CKD of unknown etiology (CKDu) in Central America and India. Dr. Claudel received her MD from Wake Forest University School of Medicine and participated in a year-long clinical research fellowship at the National Institutes of Health during her medical school training.
