(Santa Barbara, Calif.) — In chronic kidney disease (CKD), the kidneys lose their function progressively over time. At the condition’s advanced stage — end-stage renal disease — patients must receive a kidney transplant, or undergo dialysis. Those on dialysis often suffer from multiple comorbidities including diabetes and cardiovascular disease, and their mortalities and hospitalization rates are much higher than those of the general population.
Currently, more than 26 million American adults suffer from CKD.
UC Santa Barbara professor Yuedong Wang and his team work on statistical and computational methods for exploring the large amount of CKD and dialysis data to gain insights into a patient’s biology and advance personalized medicine.
