Improving the long-term survival of kidney transplant recipients is a national priority given the increasing prevalence of end-stage renal disease and current organ shortage. The research interests of Elizabeth C. Lorenz, M.D., focus on improving the ability to identify, monitor and treat modifiable risk factors for adverse long-term outcomes after kidney transplantation through the use of innovative biomarkers and interventions.
Despite the proven benefits of exercise on frailty and physical function, many recipients of kidney transplants are sedentary and frequently do not receive guidance from transplant centers regarding how to improve their physical activity level. Dr. Lorenz is hoping to develop tools that patients can use to improve their physical function, quality of life and long-term outcomes after kidney transplantation.
