Craig B. Langman, MD

Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University
Head, Kidney Diseases, Children’s Memorial Medical Center                                                                     
Department of Pediatrics


Current Research

  • We are interested in genetic and acquired bone diseases of infants, children, and adolescents, and the effects of bone-specific therapy for them. 
  • We are interested in the osteodystrophy of chronic kidney disease, as a systemic disorder of bone and the vasculature.
  • We are interested in kidney stone diseases, including the primary hyperoxalurias, Dent’s disease, and disorders of the extracellular calcium-sensing receptor. 
  • We serve as a resource for measurement of bone and mineral homeostatic factors and agents, such as FGF-23, OPG, RANKL, TGF-β, inflammatory cytokines, and others.
