Research Interest

 Dr. Gitomer’s research focus is identification of factors that affect the severity and progression of autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD). Ongoing NIH funded research studies explore genetic causes of variability in ADPKD, in addition to exploring similarities between tumor growth and expansion of cysts within the kidney.  Dr. Gitomer is co-principal investigator with her clinical collaborators on studies that explore clinical interventions to improve vascular function and identify a potential bone defect in ADPKD.
