Welcome to the Hruska lab
Our laboratory’s focus is the pathogenesis and pathophysiologic mechanisms of the chronic kidney disease-mineral and bone disorder (CKD-MBD). Kidney diseases produce a complex set of body-wide complications. Some of these contribute to the mortality of kidney diseases, which is not due to the disease itself but largely due to associated cardiovascular disease. Cardiovascular disease risk in CKD is contributed to by non-traditional risk factors which are components of the CKD-MBD syndrome.
