Kidney Disease Pharmacology: Drugs, Biologics, Delivery & Devices

The Joy laboratory specializes in research of drugs, biologics, delivery approaches, and devices in kidney disease. We use a variety of in vitro and in vivo methods to best inform about the pharmacology of drugs in diseases of the kidney. Our understanding of pharmacology in this special population comprised of both adults and pediatrics, has enabled the research and development of novel drugs and devices. This is important given that the rate of new drug and device approvals for kidney disease indications is lagging as compared to other therapeutic areas. We also have experience in conducting in vitro and in vivo studies to assess nephrotoxicity and its prevention.
