Dr. Feldman's major research interests address the epidemiology of kidney diseases with a particular focus on the management of kidney disease from the stage of chronic kidney dysfunction to end-stage renal disease. He leads Penn-based researchers and several national research groups addressing various manifestations and treatment of kidney disease. These research programs address the causes of failure of vascular accesses used for hemodialysis, anemia and metabolic disorders of kidney disease, the determinants of long-term survival of kidney allografts, the epidemiology of drug-related kidney disease, the relationship of ethnicity and kidney disease, the inter-relationship between chronic kidney disease and cardiovascular disease, and pediatric kidney diseases.
