 Research Expertise & Professional Interests
Dr. Upadhyay is a board-certified nephrologist with academic interests in examining the relationships and mechanisms of cardio-vascular and cerebro-vascular disease risk factors in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), and in assessing the hemodialysis care delivery systems for improvement in clinical outcomes. In addition, he has a special focus in medical education, particularly in areas related to improving the in-patient clinical training environment and the application of evidence-based medicine. He has conducted epidemiologic research in the Framingham Heart Study, led the evidence review team for the Kidney Disease Improving Global Outcomes (KDIGO) clinical practice guidelines on lipid management in CKD, and participated in the evidence review teams for the KDIGO clinical practice guidelines on blood pressure management in CKD and anemia management in CKD. He maintains an active clinical practice in general nephrology, hemodialysis, and peritoneal dialysis, and is an Associate Program Director of Boston Medical Center's Internal Medicine Residency Training Program. Outside of Boston University, Dr. Upadhyay serves as a voting member of the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI)’s Renal Disease and Detoxification Committee, the primary source of national and international consensus standards for hemodialysis technology and dialysis water sterilization processes.
