Three Yale researchers awarded grants for kidney research
Three Yale researchers who work to cure kidney diseases are among the recipients of grants from the American Society of Nephrology (ASN), the largest organization of kidney health professionals in the world.
ASN and the ASN Foundation for Kidney Research provide more than $3 million in funding for clinical and basic research for members at all stages of their careers each year.
The Yale researchers are Dr. Adedotun Adebamiro, named as the 2015 Dimitrios G. Oreopoulos Research Fellow; Dr. Ashima Gulati, named as a 2015 Ben J. Lipps Research Fellow; and Dr. Karel F. Liem Jr., named as the 2015 Norman Siegel Research Scholar.
Established in 2012 by the American Society of Nephrology, the ASN Foundation funds research that will help improve the health of the more than 20 million Americans burdened by kidney diseases, the ninth leading cause of death in the United States.
