The research activities in the Division of Nephrology encompass a wide range of topics with the aim of furthering our understanding of the molecular basis of disease, and developing novel therapeutic approaches to treat diseases of the kidney. Our effort to understand the molecular pathogenesis of disease states enables our progress toward the development and assessment of the therapeutic potential for small molecule, inhibitor peptide, or gene therapy interventions. Researchers at Mount Sinai’s Division of Nephrology are leading the way in the both translational and basic science discoveries in transplant nephrology and kidney fibrosis.

The Center for Polycystic Kidney Disease at Mount Sinai Beth Israel is conducting clinical research with patients at all stages of kidney disease.

These are the research initiatives in the Division of Nephrology in the Department of Medicine.
