My interest in neonatal renal physiology and injury has been a journey that began during my pediatric residency. It was during my PGY-2 year that I read an article in Pediatrics that discussed the short and long‐term risks of prematurity and chronic kidney disease. While I knew I was headed for a Neonatology fellowship, I approached Dr. David Askenazi at my home institution if there was a project appropriate for a budding Neonatologist with an interest in the kidney. Thus began my journey with AKI in the neonate!

The Charlton’s moved to Charlottesville, VA in 2007 where she completed her nephrology fellowship and Masters in Clinical Research in 2010 while the Mr./Dr. Charlton completed a toxicology fellowship.

As a pediatric resident with an interest in Neonatology I never truly considered a fellowship or research in Nephrology. However, during my first few months of Neonatology fellowship at the University of Virginia one of my mentors recommended meeting with Dr. Jennifer Charlton to see what type of projects she had on-going. This happened to be a week before PAS abstracts were due- so we picked a chart review she had been hoping to perform and one week later we had our first abstract submitted together exploring the relationship between caffeine use in preterm patients and AKI.
