Research Decription:

Using both epidemiological and patient-oriented physiological approaches, Dr. Gutierrez has concentrated his research efforts on the relationships between disturbances in mineral metabolism and clinical outcomes, focusing particularly on disorders of phosphorus and vitamin D metabolism and their associations with cardiovascular disease and mortality in kidney disease. He has a special interest in behavioral and environmental exposures that may modulate the impact of disordered mineral metabolism on health outcomes, particularly the emerging interface between socioeconomic status, nutrition, and mineral metabolism in health and in kidney disease. In addition to these efforts, Dr. Gutierrez is also examining the interconnections between disorders of iron and mineral metabolism, particularly as they relate to the management of anemia in patients with chronic kidney disease.
