Dr. Hunley is a clinician in the Division of Pediatric Nephrology & Hypertension where he cares for kidney related diseases in kids from neonates to young adults. His interests include glomerular disease, Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome, kidney stones and pediatric hypertension including obesity -related. His research endeavors are directed at better understanding and treating these entities. Dr. Hunley is the Vanderbilt Pediatrics site Principal Investigator for CureGN, (Cure Glomerulonephropathy; www.CureGN.org) a multicenter National Institute of Health (NIH)-funded consortium working collaboratively to recruit and follow a large cohort of participants with Minimal Change Disease, FSGS, Membranous Nephropathy, and IgA Nephropathy. An underlying hypothesis is that different disease mechanisms can result in similar pathologic and clinical phenotypes, but different disease courses. Identifying and characterizing these mechanisms will have broad influence on diagnostic classification, accurate prognostication, definition of patient cohorts for clinical trials, and identification of individualized therapies.
