Ilori Lab

Ilori laboratory focuses on identifying and reducing health disparities in chronic kidney disease and other non-communicable diseases.  Our work looks at etiologic factors and modifiers of CKD, with a special emphasis on the effect of diet, biomarkers, and genetics on CKD progression in both low and high-resource countries.  We are interested in how precision medicine can be used to reduce health disparities in kidney disease (both within the US and globally).
