I have helped to describe the association between bisphosphonate therapy and adynamic bone disease in CKD patients, by using dynamic bone labeling and bone histology. With my colleagues at MSBI, I have described the inflammation evident in ESRD patients with various types of hemodialysis access. As a co-investigator in an industry funded clinical trial [Multi-Center Study of the Effect of Sevelamer Carbonate on Metabolic/Inflammatory/Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) in Diabetes with Nephropathy, the AGELESS study] at MSBI and Mount Sinai, I helped recruit study subjects and am involved in the current publication of our findings. I have also guided the comprehensive survey of the impact of Hurricane Sandy on hemodialysis patients in NYC; and will soon publish our findings. As the training program director and division chief (interim) for Nephrology & Hypertension at MSBI I will be responsible for promoting scholarly activity and research among all fellows and faculty.

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.
