Matthew Wilson M.D., Ph.D.

Department: Medicine


My expertise is in caring for patients with chronic kidney disease.  I am particularly interested in patients with genetic forms of kidney disease, undiscovered genetic forms of kidney disease, and developing new therapies for kidney disease and its complications.

My translational research efforts are focused on engineering new therapeutic approaches which are lacking in preventing progression of kidney disease or dealing with its complications.  Currently, my research focuses on developing a novel cell therapy for anemia which is a common issue for patients with kidney disease, especially end-stage kidney disease.  My efforts are also directed towards developing gene-based approaches for correcting gene defects or preventing progression of kidney disease. My research laboratory is funded both by the NIH and VA.
