Research synopsis: 

My research interest involves studying instruments to assess glomerular filtration rate (GFR) in cancer patients. I have a particular interest in validating current equations that are routinely used based on serum creatinine level, as well as evaluate new serum GFR biomarkers such as cystatin C. My expectation is that we could validate robust instruments to be used in clinical practice such when deciding upon dose adjustment for chemotherapy drugs.
