Elected 2021

Dr. Kottgen received an MD from Albert Ludwigs University in 2001 and an MPH from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in 2006. She works on genetic and non-genetic risk factors for kidney disease and related conditions, as well as on kidney disease as a risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Genetic projects include both candidate gene and genome-wide association approaches. I am currently participating in several large consortia of cohort studies with genome-wide association data.
