Biography

Dr. Tammy Brady is an assistant professor of pediatrics at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. She provides care for children with all types of kidney problems, from microscopic hematuria to kidney transplant recipients. Dr. Brady serves as the medical director of the pediatric hypertension program at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.

After graduating magna cum laude from Boston College with a degree in psychology and philosophy, Dr. Brady earned her medical degree from Georgetown University School of Medicine. She completed her residency in pediatrics at The Children’s Hospital at Montefiore, where she was chief resident. Dr. Brady performed her fellowship in pediatric nephrology at Johns Hopkins. As part of her fellowship training, she received a master’s degree in clinical epidemiology from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

Dr. Brady joined the Johns Hopkins faculty in 2008. After joining the faculty, she returned to the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and was awarded a Ph.D. in clinical investigation.

Her research interests include pediatric hypertension; specifically, she is interested in identifying the factors that influence detecting elevated blood pressure and hypertension in children in the primary-care setting as well as determining the effects hypertension can have on the heart in children. This important research has fostered collaborations with pediatricians in the Harriet Lane Clinic and the Division of Pediatric Cardiology.

Dr. Brady is the recipient of numerous research grants and awards, the latest of which includes a grant from the American Society of Nephrology (ASN). This ASN Norman Siegel Research Scholar Grant Award, along with a Professional Development Award from the National Kidney Foundation of Maryland and a grant award from the Thomas Wilson Sanitarium for the Children of Baltimore City, is funding a longitudinal study of factors impacting regression of left ventricular hypertrophy in children with primary hypertension.
