Navdeep Tangri is an associate professor in the Division of Nephrology, Department of Medicine and Community Health Sciences at the University of Manitoba, where he obtained his medical degree. He also serves as an attending nephrologist at Seven Oaks General Hospital, Winnipeg.
Dr Tangri’s main research interest revolves around improving clinical decision-making for patients with advanced chronic kidney disease (CKD). His efforts in understanding CKD led to the development of the Kidney Failure Risk Equation (KFRE), used worldwide to predict the need for dialysis in patients with CKD. He is presently engaged in multiple validation and implementation exercises to increase the uptake of the KFRE. In addition, Dr Tangri is conducting a large prospective study on physical and cognitive function in patients with advanced CKD, as well as comparative effectiveness studies and clinical trials on the safety and effectiveness of medical therapies in this population. He has active grants from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the Kidney Foundation of Canada, and the National Institutes of Health.
Dr Tangri has been the recipient of numerous awards, including the CIHR New Investigator Award and a CIHR foundation award for his work on CKD progression. He is a member of the editorial board of the American Journal of Kidney Disease, the Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology, and the Canadian Journal of Kidney Health and Disease, as well as Section Editor for the Epidemiology and Prevention Issue of Current Opinion in Nephrology and Hypertension. He has published over 270 manuscripts and presented at multiple national and international scientific meetings.
