My research focus is on improving early diagnostic and prognostic approaches for evaluating donor organs as well as kidney recipients around the time of transplantation and during clinical follow up. I perform in-depth epidemiological studies in transplantation using national databases as well as clinical observational studies in transplant patients. I also participate in large, cutting-edge translational studies to discover and validate novel non-invasive biomarkers to assess transplant kidney quality, acute injury and repair processes.
About the Principal Investigator
Isaac E. Hall, MD, MS is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Medicine, Division of Nephrology & Hypertension. Dr. Hall received a BA in Mathematics from Fort Lewis College in Durango, CO and his MD from the University of New Mexico. He completed Internal Medicine residency and Nephrology fellowship training at Yale-New Haven Hospital before receiving his MS in Epidemiology and Public Health from the Yale University Graduate School. Dr. Hall’s clinical interests involve all aspects of kidney transplantation including candidate evaluation of both donors and recipients, processes of care around organ procurement and quality assessment, and perioperative as well as long-term care of both donors and recipients. His research focus involves the study of biomarkers of acute kidney injury and repair in the setting of transplantation.
