Webinar hosting presenter
I am Associate Professor (Anatomy) at The University College Dublin (UCD) School of Medicine and Principal Investigator at The UCD Diabetes Complications Research Centre at The UCD Conway Institute. I am interested in the role of obesity and diabetes as modifiable risk factors for the development and progression of chronic kidney disease. To this end, I co-lead translational research studies at The UCD Metabolic Medicine group wherein we work to identify and characterise optimised surgical and medical approaches for the treatment of obesity, type 2 diabetes and associated chronic kidney disease.
