Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Middleton "I am a nephrologist at Duke University with over 20 years of experience as a clinician clinical researcher and mentor. In my outpatient practice I take care of patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). In my hospital work I evaluate and care for patients with acute kidney injury and with electrolyte disorders. In clinical research I am experienced in serving on steering committees for multicenter clinical trials in CKD including work with National Institutes of Health (NIH)-funded trials -- the African American Study of Kidney Disease and Hypertension (AASK) the AASK Cohort Study the Dialysis Access Consortium and the Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) treatment trial. I recently joined the steering committee for the NIDDK consortium pilot studies of candidate therapies for CKD. I am active in multiple industry-sponsored clinical trials. I am a member of the executive committee for the Collaborative Study Group a consortium that has implemented several successful clinical trials in nephrology."
