About the Presenter: Top of page

Christina Wyatt’s research has focused on defining the epidemiology of kidney disease among HIV-infected individuals, including those with comorbid risk factors such as Hepatitis C co-infection and diabetes. She is also the on-site nephrologist for the Mount Sinai Institute for Advanced Medicine, which provides clinical care for nearly 10,000 individuals living with HIV infection. Her research has involved productive collaborations with large HIV cohorts, including the VA Aging Cohort Study, the WIHS, and the INSIGHT clinical trials network. Dr. Wyatt is the PI on an R01 investigating the potential for kidney injury with oral antiretroviral therapy for HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis, and she directs the clinical core of a longstanding P01 investigating the pathogenesis of HIV-associated nephropathy. In addition to original research publications, she has been an invited presenter at international scientific meetings in HIV and nephrology, and an invited contributor to more than twenty reviews and book chapters on HIV-related kidney disease and antiretroviral nephrotoxicity.
