Share the Science: Dr. Kevin Burns, Treating Acute Kidney Injury
RECORDING COMING SOON: Acute kidney injury (AKI) is incredibly common, affecting as many as 20% of hospitalized patients according to the National Kidney Foundation. Sadly, despite years of research, doctors have not found an effective treatment for acute kidney injury. As a result, mortality rates remain high at 1-5% of hospitalized patients. However, the research of Dr. Kevin D. Burns from the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute is providing new hope for patients and cord blood may be the key.
Save the Cord Foundation and Mediware, Inc. are proud to welcome Dr. Kevin Burns to speak about his research on the next edition of our popular webinar series, Share the Science (learn more about the series here). A professor of medicine in the division of Nephrology at the Department of Medicine of the Ottawa Hospital and University of Ottawa, Dr. Burns has dedicated his career to kidney research.
