Academic Interests and Plans
For the past five years I have maintained a clinical practice in inpatient nephrology/hypertension and outpatient hemodialysis at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital. In my clinical practice I participate in inpatient nephrology rounds as well as monitoring and managing anemia and mineral and bone disorders of the outpatients receiving chronic hemodialysis. My research has focused on anemia of CKD, CKD-Mineral and Bone Disorders, and hepatitis B vaccination regimens at RWJUH as well as a nearby free-standing outpatient dialysis center. The majority of my time is dedicated to clinical practice and precepting pharmacy students at the hospital during their last year of advanced practice experiential rotations. Among my teaching responsibilities at the school of pharmacy, I teach the nephrology block in the Pharmacotherapeutics, Pharmacokinetics and Biopharmaceutics courses. I also teach topics in the curriculum for the Nephrology fellows and residents of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. My most challenging committee responsibility is serving as co-chairperson of the Academic Integrity Committee.
