Meredith Schuh, MD

February, 2022

Dr. Schuh is an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center in the Division of Nephrology & Hypertension with secondary appointment in the Division of Developmental Biology.  She completed her undergraduate at Tufts University and received her medical degree at Tufts University School of Medicine.  She completed her Pediatric Residency and Pediatric Nephrology at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center.

Her research focuses on uncovering the mechanisms of primate-specific late gestation nephrogenesis (lateral branch nephrogenesis) in order to improve nephron endowment in preterm infants. Her lab uses the latest molecular technologies including single-cell RNA sequencing, laser capture microdissection with RNA sequencing, single-nucleus RNA sequencing, and single-nucleus ATAC sequencing in order to identify mechanistic pathways active during late gestation nephrogenesis. Ultimately this work aims to improve the health of preterm infants by identifying pathways to extend this critical period postnatally. She is currently funded by the ASN Normal Siegel Research Scholar Grant.
