Research Interests

Dr. Kestenbaum is a Nephrologist and Epidemiologist who studies the metabolic complications of kidney disease. His research group focuses on developing new methods for assessing kidney function, understanding the determinants and consequences of mineral metabolism disturbances, and investigating the impact of uremic toxins on skeletal muscle functioning. Their ongoing work spans large cohort studies to hands-on translational research within the Kidney Research Institute, a clinical and translational unit that houses a critical mass of investigators, study personnel, and staff.
