Congenital anomalies of the kidney and urinary tract (CAKUT) are frequently diagnosed in childhood and may lead to advanced chronic kidney disease (CKD) or need urological intervention in childhood. The transition into adulthood should integrate this past and potentially long history of CKD as well as prior urological surgeries and urologic issues persisting into adulthood with the need to prescribe intervention that delay CKD progression. 


To understand the adult issues posed by

1. History of childhood chronic kidney disease

2. Challenges of previous surgeries and urologic issues through adulthood

3. Prevention of progression to ESKD

    Dr. Indra R. Gupta obtained her medical degree at the University of Alberta. She completed her pediatric residency at McMaster University, and her subspecialty training in pediatric nephrology at the Hospital for Sick Children. She is a pediatric nephrologist and clinician-scientist. Her research focuses on understanding the basis for congenital defects in the kidneys and urinary tracts. These disorders account for 40% of all cases of kidney failure in children and result in dialysis and transplantation for those affected children. Her laboratory is using cell lines, animal models and samples from affected children to understand these defects and to identify new therapeutic possibilities.
