Understanding subtypes of kidney disorders

Researchers at the Kidney Health Research Institute, in collaboration with others, both in the U.S. and internationally through the CKDGen Consortium, are utilizing genetic information, including information from the MyCode Community Health Initiative at Geisinger, to discover new genes related to kidney function, kidney damage, and chronic kidney disease by performing collaborative studies involving over 750,000 individuals from over 100 populations worldwide. By combining electronic health record and genomic data, research efforts are targeting specific kidney diseases and the complications associated with diabetes and obesity. A "precision medicine" approach to individualize patient care and the establishment of a Fabry Registry at Geisinger has been undertaken to improve the health and well being of patients with Fabry disease.
