Biography

I am a consultant nephrologist at the Mater Misericordiae University Hospital. My research interests include diabetic nephropathy, the biology of inflammation and fibrosis, and chronic kidney disease. I am a co-supervisor of both MD and PhD students. Our efforts form an important part of the critical link between the bedside and the bench, helping to further the goals of translational research and improving the care delivered to our patients.
