Dr. Jacqueline Ho is a paediatric nephrology fellow who obtained her M.D. from the University of Western Ontario in London. She will complete a post-doctoral fellowship with Dr. Jordan Kreidberg at the Boston Children’s Hospital in Massachusetts. Dr. Ho will study the regulation of kidney development. In children, congenital anomalies of the kidney are amongst the most common causes of renal failure. Ultimately, a better understanding of normal kidney development may lead to better strategies to prevent the onset of renal failure.
