  • Stephen Sozio Lab

    Researchers in the Stephen Sozio Lab study chronic kidney disease epidemiology, determine risk factors for stroke and cognitive impairment in patients with kidney disease, and perform comparative effectiveness research in patients with ESRD.

    Research Areas: end stage renal disease (ESRD), epidemiology, kidney diseases, stroke

  • Susan Hutfless Lab

    The Susan Hutfless Lab uses administrative data to investigate epidemiologic questions about the causes of and treatments for chronic diseases, with a focus on gastrointestinal disorders. Our team has provided epidemiologic expertise to help design and analyze large-dataset studies of cervical cancer, colorectal cancer and mortality related to inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). We also have conducted research on infection-related triggers of Crohn’s disease in susceptible military personnel as well as prenatal and childhood predictors of pediatric-onset IBD.

    Research Areas: inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn’s disease, epidemiology, data analysis, maternal health, chronic disease, gastrointestinal

  • Thomas Quinn Lab

    Research in the Thomas Quinn Lab encompasses epidemiology, pathogenesis and clinical features of HIV/AIDS internationally, which includes the interaction between STDs and tropical diseases on the natural history and spread of HIV/AIDS in developing countries. Our recent research has examined the viral kinetics and transmission probabilities of HIV among discordant couples with the subsequent design and application of interventions, including therapy to prevent transmission of HIV. Molecular studies have mapped the molecular epidemic of HIV on a global basis, linking virologic changes to the spread of HIV and measuring the demographic impact of the epidemic.

    Research Areas: epidemiology, infectious disease, AIDS, HIV, sexually transmitted diseases, pathogenesis

  • Virginia Weaver Lab

    The Virginia Weaver Lab uses molecular epidemiology tools to evaluate chemically exposed populations. We explore the validation of exposure and early biological effect markers for research and medical surveillance. Our primary research area is the effects of occupational and environmental toxicants on the kidney. We are currently investigating how metals affect kidney function, examining in particular clinical measures and early biological effect markers, including urinary N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosaminidase. Our studies have involved populations of lead workers in South Korea and environmentally exposed adolescents in Mexico.

    Research Areas: medical surveillance, global health, epidemiology, biomarkers, kidney diseases, environment

  • William Checkley Lab

    Research in the William Checkley Lab explores the field of lung health, with an emphasis on the epidemiology of obstructive lung diseases as well as acute lung injury and mechanical ventilation. We also explore the interactions between nutrition and infection, and the impact of environmental exposures to health.

    Research Areas: critical care medicine, epidemiology, international lung health, mechanical ventilation, acute lung injury, lung disease

  • Zackary Berger Lab

    The research mission of the Zackary Berger Lab is to bridge evidence-based medicine and shared decision-making in the context of patient-centered care. Lab studies investigate how to accomplish this in the common case of uncertainty, while seeking to clarify the ethics of decision-making and empirically describe how shared decision-making is and should be done.

    Zackary Berger, MD, PhD, is an assistant professor in the Division of General Internal Medicine at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. In addition to his work as an internist and primary care physician, Dr. Berger is an associate faculty member in the Berman Institute of Bioethics, and core faculty in the Evidence Based Practice Center as well as the Center for Health Services and Outcomes Research.

    Research Areas: epidemiology, patient-centered health care, evidence-based medicine, bioethics
