Dr. Sarah Panzer is a faculty member of the Division of Nephrology within the Department of Medicine. She is board certified in Internal Medicine and Nephrology, and is a member of the American Society of Nephrology and the American Society of Transplantation. Dr. Panzer has an active research program, and is also involved with medical education, working with a wide range of learners in a variety of settings.
Dr. Panzer's clinical interests include glomerulonephritis, chronic kidney diseases, and acute kidney injury.
Dr. Panzer has a broad background in nephrology, with specific expertise in glomerular diseases. Her research focuses on transplant glomerulopathy (TG) and efforts to develop clinical diagnostics and therapies to improve survival in kidney transplant patients. Dr. Panzer’s additional areas of research interest include lupus nephritis, focal segmental glomerulonephritis (FSGS), immune-complex glomerulonephritis, and C3 glomerulopathy. While working under her KL2 research funding awarded by the NIH through ICTR, Dr. Panzer demonstrated that B cell deficiency attenuated TG in a pre-clinical model. This research topic is both novel and of clinical importance as TG is a major cause of allograft failure in kidney transplant recipients and no effective therapeutics exist.
