UVA Division of Nephrology and the Center for Immunity, Inflammation and Regenerative Medicine (CIIR), part of the Department of Medicine, is dedicated to the study and treatment of kidney disorders and diseases. The Divisions of Nephrology/CIIR consists of 36 full-time faculty with primary appointments in the Division and one Professor Emeritus: 24 MD/DO, two MD/PhD, and eight PhD. With award-winning educators and an NIH T32 training grant entitled “Kidney Disease and Inflammation” we offer trainees a rich clinical and research experience aimed at producing the next generation nephrologists and kidney research scientists.  There are a number of postdoctoral fellows/graduate students in the Division/CIIR and additional scientists and undergraduate and medical students. We are working collaboratively to improve patient care and outcomes, achieve excellence in our scholarly and research endeavors, and nurture innovation in our labs and classrooms. Many of our faculty are leaders in national and international professional societies, members of NIH Study Section, on editorial boards of reputable journals, among America’s Top Doctors, and have been recognized for outstanding achievements in their respective fields.

As a division, we are committed to building bridges with our local community of Charlottesville and throughout the state of Virginia.

Current Information

Unexpected Link Found Between Immune Cells, Weight Control, Disease Resistance

New research from the University of Virginia School of Medicine has shown how our DNA determines our ability to fight off viruses, revealing that many genes work together to control immune cells, tissue inflammation, even our body weight after infection. The research could one day allow doctors to tweak immune cells to enhance their ability to destroy viruses, and it may also assist in the development of new vaccines, among other benefits.
