Clinical Responsibilities

Dr. Laura Malaga-Dieguez joined the division of Pediatric Nephrology in September 2013. She is a graduate of the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Oviedo, Spain and holds a PhD in Molecular Biology from the Medical University of Vienna, Austria. She completed pediatric nephrology fellowship at The Children's Hospital at Montefiore (Albert Einstein College of Medicine) in New York and was a visiting fellow in the laboratory of Katalin Sustzak, MD PhD in the University of Pennsylvania, where a multidisciplinary approach is used to understand the genetic and cellular basis of renal fibrosis and chronic kidney disease development using genetic approaches and mice as model organisms to test the role of candidate genes and signaling molecules directly in vivo. Specifically, her work has focused on determining the role and signaling pathways of the LKB1 gene in the kidney. Her research has highlighted the role of this master kinase in the maintenance of renal structure and homeostasis. Dr. Malaga-Dieguez has published on topics such as pharmacochaperoning and molecular changes in peritoneal dialysis, and has presented at multiple national and international venues. She is a member of the American Society of Nephrology, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Society of Pediatric Nephrology.

Dr. Malaga-Dieguez's main interests include the treatment of children with nephrotic syndrome, including minimal change disease and focal segmental glomerulosclerosis, glomerular diseases, autoimmune glomerular diseases such as lupus nephritis, chronic kidney disease, inherited kidney diseases such as Alport Syndrome and cystic diseases of the kidneys, acute kidney injury, kidney stones, urinary tract infections, electrolyte disorders, hypertension, renal replacement therapies, renal transplantation and congenital anomalies of the kidney and urinary tract.
