Tanika Kelly, PhD, MPH and Ana Ricardo, MD, MPH, MS

Chosen as one of 6 sites for a national ‘multi-omics’ research consortium, Tanika Kelly, PhD, MPH and Ana C. Ricardo, MD, MPH, MS of the UIC Division of Nephrology alongside Maria Argos of Boston University will lead the UIC site.  The UIC site will focus on developing and applying new molecular technologies and data science strategies to understand the cellular changes linking adverse environmental exposures to diabetes and chronic kidney disease, following a cohort of 300 racially and ethnically diverse patients. These investigators will look for novel molecular mechanisms responsible for the initiation of kidney disease in patients with diabetes  and the progression of this condition to end-stage disease.
