Peter S. Aronson, MD, is a kidney specialist who treats inpatients at Yale New Haven Hospital. As a clinician and researcher, he is particularly interested in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with disturbances in the concentration of sodium and potassium in their blood, or who have abnormal acid-base balance.
“The general goal of our research is to understand how the kidney regulates the composition of the urine, especially as needed to maintain the salt and acid-base balance of the body,” he says. “There have been many recent advances in understanding the molecular basis underlying kidney disorders.”
Dr. Aronson is a professor of medicine (nephrology) and of cellular and molecular physiology at Yale School of Medicine. He was chief of nephrology at Yale from 1987 to 2002.
