Prabhleen Singh, MD
San Diego, CA USA
Dr. Singh is an Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Division of Nephrology-Hypertension at the University of California San Diego and VA San Diego Healthcare system. She received her MBBS degree from Nagpur University, India and subsequently completed residency and nephrology fellowship training at the University of Alabama, Birmingham and University of California, San Diego (UCSD). She joined the faculty at UCSD in 2009 and is supported by a NIH K08 mentored clinical scientist research career development award.
Her research interest is focused on elucidating the key renal hemodynamic and metabolic adaptations including mitochondrial function at the onset of acute kidney injury and chronic kidney disease which play a key role in the pathophysiology of disease progression. Well-established physiological techniques, such as renal micropuncture, which offers the opportunity to study single nephron function in an intact kidney and in-vivo whole-kidney oxygen consumption, are utilized in experimental models to answer clinically relevant questions. Clinical interests include ICU nephrology and acute kidney injury.
