Liwei Huang, MD, PhD
In her own words, "My laboratory within the Division of Nephrology in the Eastern Virginia Medical School is dedicated on researches to discover new diagnostic markers and novel therapies for patients with kidney disease. Being a nephrologist seeing patients with all kinds of kidney disease, I have always had a unique perspective to biomedical research that is inspired by my personal experience in caring for patients. I hope my research work can help to discover new therapies for my patient’s devastating diseases. There are currently two research fields in my laboratory. One is polycystic kidney disease and the other one is diabetic nephropathy."
