Program Details

The Duke Pediatric Division of Nephrology has a three-year fellowship program that is fully accredited by the American Council of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). In addition to training outstanding clinical nephrologists, our education goal is to train future physician-scientists and academic leaders in pediatric nephrology.

Our division is actively involved in multiple clinical and basic/translational research projects and holds a number of grants. We are active members of the Midwest Pediatric Nephrology Consortium.

Dr. Shashi Nagaraj is actively researching the identification of genetic causes of renal disease and other undiagnosed disorders through the Undiagnosed Diseases Clinic.

Dr. Rasheed Gbadegesin is actively researching the genetics of nephrotic syndrome and has discovered a number of new gene mutations responsible for kidney disease in children. He is also involved in discovering genetic mutations responsible for vesicoureteral reflux and other congenital renal and urinary anomalies.

Dr. John Foreman is involved in clinical trials focusing on the safety and efficacy of antihypertensive medications in children and adolescents. He is also involved in treating children with atypical HUS and CKD.

Dr. Annabelle Chua is actively involved in national collaborative studies working to improve the care of children with chronic kidney disease as well as clinical trials involving CKD in children.
