Lyndsay Harshman, MD
Medical School: University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine
Residency: University of Iowa
Research Interests: My research interests involve the impact of chronic disease on cognition in pediatric chronic kidney disease (CKD). I am particularly interested in medical decision-making in CKD, particularly in adolescence and the transition to early adulthood. I am currently investigating the impact of chronic kidney disease on academic achievement using a linkage analysis between the Iowa Testing Programs and patient medical data from the University of Iowa Children's Hospital. Future goals include using behavioral tasks, neuroimaging (both structural and functional), and psychophysiological measurement to understand the impact of CKD on the developing brain.
