Dr. Mariani is currently an Assistant Professor in the Division of Nephrology at the University of Michigan. She has a primary clinical and research interest in observational studies in glomerular disease. She is involved in several clinical and translational NIH-funded research studies in kidney diseases, including the Nephrotic Syndrome Study Network (NEPTUNE), the Cure Glomerulonephropathy (CureGN) Consortium, and the Kidney Precision Medicine Program (KPMP) Central Hub.
Additionally, Dr. Mariani’s primary research interest is in developing and applying statistical methods for clinical outcome definition and prediction of kidney disease progression as well as linking clinical phenotype to novel biomarkers and high dimensional omics data to better understand disease mechanisms that can be targeted for therapy in glomerular disease.
