Tariq Shafi Lab

  • Research in the Tariq Shafi Lab focuses on improving the care of kidney failure patients who are on dialysis. We’re developing methods to evaluate and estimate residual kidney function—a strong predictor of survival in dialysis patients—and identifying ways to halt the loss of residual kidney function. We’re also involved with the Choices for Healthy Outcomes in Caring for ESRD (CHOICE) study, which compares the effectiveness of common treatment strategies for patients with end stage renal disease (ESRD).
