The Center investigators benefit from access to a set of complementary Biomedical Research Core Resources that integrate existing intellectual and technological resources of UAB and UCSD providing defined services that facilitate the research of investigators pursuing AKI-related basic and clinical investigation.
Administrative Core - Director: Anupam Agarwal, MD
Biomedical Research Cores
Clinical Studies of AKI (Core A) - Director: Ravindra Mehta, MD
Pre-Clinical Studies of AKI (Core B) - Director: Paul Sanders, MD
Bioanalytical Core (Core C) - Director: Stephen Barnes, PhD
Biostatistical Core - Director: Garry Cutter, PhD
The Educational component of the Center is used to:
- increase collaborative interactions among Center members
- enhance the expertise of investigators
- foster the development of new projects with translational potential
- facilitate training of the next generation of investigators in the field of kidney-related research
The Pilot and Feasibility studies provide funds for new, outstanding and innovative research proposals related to Acue Kidney Injury. These funds provide investigators with one to two years of support along with access to the cores to support projects.
