Penn-Chop Kidney Innovation Center March 2023 Seminar
This seminar series features research in progress by postdocs, fellows, and faculty within the Penn-CHOP community. The conference also includes experts from various core facilities presenting method-based research seminars, bioethics lectures by University of Pennsylvania (Penn) medical ethics and health policy faculty, as well as invited speakers from outside Penn.
This seminar will feature Jordana B. Cohen, MD, MSCE.
Dr. Cohen is an Assistant Professor of Medicine and Epidemiology in the Renal-Electrolyte and Hypertension Division and Department of Biostatistics, Epidemiology and Informatics, and a Senior Scholar in the Center for Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics at the University of Pennsylvania. She is a board-certified nephrologist and a hypertension specialist. Her primary clinical responsibility is caring for a panel of patients with complex hypertension as part of the American Society of Hypertension/American Heart Association (AHA) Level 1 Hypertension Center at the University of Pennsylvania. Her NIH K23 award focused on optimizing the management of hypertension in obesity, with a goal of mitigating target organ cardiac and kidney damage in this high risk-patient population. She leads a portfolio of research projects that 1) examine physiology-driven pharmacologic effects of antihypertensive medications in complex and high-risk disease states and 2) seek novel strategies to improve blood pressure measurement and mitigate target organ effects of hypertension. She is chair of the Data Coordinating Center for two multi-center, international randomized controlled trials and is co-chair of the Chronic Renal Insufficiency Cohort (CRIC) Blood Pressure (BP) Working Group.

The Penn-CHOP Kidney Innovation Center is led by Michelle Denburg and Katalin Susztak and brings together scientists in clinical epidemiology, biostatistics, bioinformatics, computational biology, genetics, pathology, physiology, biochemistry, immunology, genomics, pharmacology, psychology and education with the key concept of interdisciplinary collaboration as the driving force to accelerate improvements in the health and well-being of all patients with kidney disease. The Center’s collaboration between Penn and CHOP is focused on ultimately transforming patient care by early detection, prevention and treatment of kidney disease and its complications across the life course.
