Biography

Dr. Waikar is a clinician-investigator with interest in acute kidney injury (AKI), chronic kidney disease (CKD), renal replacement therapy, and electrolyte abnormalities. Dr. Waikar's research projects include epidemiologic investigations utilizing large databases as well as translational/patient-oriented research projects. Ongoing studies in my research group include: the epidemiology of AKI and hyponatremia; novel blood and urinary biomarkers of AKI and CKD; and small solute flux during hemodialysis and continuous renal replacement therapy. Dr. Waikar's lab has a number of ongoing observational cohorts with biological sample collection in patients with and at risk for AKI and CKD, including in patients undergoing cardiac surgery, cardiac catheterization, intensive care unit hospitalization, cisplatin chemotherapy, and kidney biopsy.
