A variety of ongoing clinical research projects are available to the trainee. Within the Division of Nephrology, research interests include hypertension, nephritic syndrome, transplantation and complications of post-kidney transplant.
The CHEO Research Institute offers tremendous support to our trainees through various workshops, which discuss different statistical methods and different ways to get started with research projects.
As a team, we publish in peer review journals and contribute book chapters to textbooks. We have also actively participated at international conferences with more than 10 oral/poster presentations. Members of our division are active members of editorial boards of international journals in the field of pediatric nephrology and are sought after as peer reviewers for major pediatric journals.
Members of the division participate in national and international multi-centre studies and enrol patients into international registries such as the North American Pediatric Renal Trials and Collaborative Studies (NAPRTCS) database. Our team members are actively involved in several regional and hospital affiliated committees.
