As a pediatric nephrologist and intensivist, Dr. Fuhrman’s overall research interests are in the areas of acute kidney injury (AKI) and continuous renal replacement therapy. Currently, her research focus is in the prevention and early detection of AKI in children. She is interested in studying renal reserve as defined by the difference in a baseline and a protein stimulated glomerular filtration rate. She plans to determine if children with lower renal reserve values are at a greater risk for AKI after cardiac surgery. Also, she is interested in investigating if the cell cycle arrest biomarkers, tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases-2 and insulin-like growth factor binding protein 7, could be used to predict the risk and earlier diagnosis of AKI in this patient population.
