Meet the Chief: Dr. James P. Lash

James P. Lash, MD

The Division of Nephrology at the University of Illinois Chicago is committed to excellence in the areas of patient care, teaching and research. We provide clinical services for the evaluation and treatment of the full spectrum of kidney diseases, hypertension, and fluid-electrolyte disorders. The Division is highly committed to the educational mission of the University and is actively engaged in the training of nephrology fellows as well as the education of medical students and residents.

The Division of Nephrology has a long history of excellence in the field of nephrology. In the early 1950’s, percutaneous kidney biopsy was refined and developed as a clinical tool at the University. The first living kidney transplant from a living related donor in Illinois was performed at the University in 1968. In the area of research, the Division has long established track record in the field of chronic kidney disease (CKD) including the epidemiology of CKD, health disparities in CKD, multi-omic mechanisms underlying CKD, and the molecular biology of acute kidney injury and autoimmune disease.
