Physiologic alterations of sodium, potassium, calcium,acid-base and fluid balance

All aspects of clinical nephrology are of interest with an emphasis on pathophysiologic mechanisms. In addition, abnormalities of cardiovascular hemodynamics hypertension, intrinsic renal disease, pathology, acute and chronic renal failure, as well with dialysis and its myriad complications are considered.

Industry Relationships

Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.

Dr. Stein did not report having any of the following types of financial relationships with industry during 2015 and/or 2016: consulting, scientific advisory board, industry-sponsored lectures, service on Board of Directors, participation on industry-sponsored committees, equity ownership valued at greater than 5% of a publicly traded company or any value in a privately held company.
