Dr. Daehn research laboratory investigates the cell-type specific responses and signals of glomerular disease progression in CKD. With particular focus in examing the signaling crosstalk between podocytes, endocapillary cells and mesangial cells that lead to irreversible segmental sclerosis characteristic of glomerular disease progression. The research aims to identify novel glomerular lesion-specific therapeutic targets.
Dr. Daehn holds a degree in Biotechnology (Honors) from Flinders University of South Australia. She performed a research placement at the Fundacion Jimenez Diaz, Madrid before starting her Doctorate studies at Flinders University of SA, and was awarded her PhD in 2007. She was a postdoctoral fellow at Cancer Research UK, in London and came to NYC to pursue a second postdoctoral fellowship at Mount Sinai.
Dr. Daehn is a member of DBRC and OAEM Steering Committees and former Co-chair of the Postdoc Executive Committee at Mount Sinai. She sits on NYC Tech Connect’s Entrepreneurial Scientist Advisory Panel.

My research focuses on exploring the complexity of signaling crosstalk between cells in the kidney. Particularly, my work aims to examine molecular mechanisms in the glomerulus that result in kidney disease progression and diabetic nephropathy in order to identify novel glomerular lesion-specific therapeutic targets and biomarkers. I have so far taken innovative approaches to examine the development of glomerular disease and the outcomes from this work have provided a fundamental paradigm shift in our current understanding of chronic kidney disease development.
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.Daehn did not report having any of the following types of financial relationships with industry during 2021 and/or 2022: 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. Please note that this information may differ from information posted on corporate sites due to timing or classification differences.
Mount Sinai's faculty policies relating to faculty collaboration with industry are posted on our website. Patients may wish to ask their physician about the activities they perform for companies.
Physicians who provide services at hospitals and facilities in the Mount Sinai Health System might not participate in the same health plans as those Mount Sinai hospitals and facilities (even if the physicians are employed or contracted by those hospitals or facilities).
Information regarding insurance participation and billing by this physician may be found on this page, and can also be obtained by contacting this provider directly. Because physicians insurance participation can change, the insurance information on this page may not always be up-to-date. Please contact this physician directly to obtain the most up-to-date insurance information.
Insurance and health plan networks that the various Mount Sinai Health System hospitals and facilities participate in can be found on the Mount Sinai Health System website.
