Fellows Research

BalamuthusamyFellows are provided an opportunity to do research for six to ten months during the two-year fellowship. During research months, fellows are expected to participate either in laboratory-based research or clinical research.

The goal of the research rotation is to introduce fellows to rigorous scientific activity. For those who plan a clinical career, this should provide an appreciation of the medical research, which will enhance their approach to the clinical literature throughout their careers.

The list below highlights the research projects that the 2010-2012 Nephrology  & Hypertension fellows have participated in.
