Dr. Parikh is Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School. He serves as Associate Vice Chair for Research in the Department of Medicine and Director of the Center for Vascular Biology Research at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. His research is focused on molecular mechanisms underlying acute kidney injury and sepsis. In recent studies, the Parikh laboratory has implicated mitochondrial maintenance via PGC1 and NAD+ as a novel pathway for resilience against AKI. Ongoing studies are examining mechanistic links between AKI, CKD, and aging and how NAD+ metabolism impacts injury in other organs. Work from his team has been published in Nature, Nature Medicine, JCI, Science Translational Medicine, PNAS and other high-impact journals.
