Roberto Sami Neder Kalil, M.D.
Associate Professor

Dr. Kalil's clinical and research interests focus on kidney and pancreas transplantation.

His research is focused on mechanisms of progression of atherosclerosis in recipients of kidney transplantation. He is currently conducting a long-term, prospective clinical trial studying endothelial function,  vascular calcification, and inflammation in kidney transplant patients.

In addition to cardiovascular research in kidney transplantation, Dr. Kalil is interested in clinical trials testing new immunosuppressive regiments. He was the site principal investigator for a large, multi-center study evaluating early withdrawal of calcineurin inhibitors in kidney transplantation.
