A prolific researcher, Dr. Perry has served as the principal investigator on numerous projects funded by the National Institutes of Health and other leading research organizations. Among her most notable projects is recent research examining impaired osteoblast and osteocyte maturation in the pathogenesis of renal osteodystrophy.

She also regularly lectures on her work and has more than 40 presentations and 45 peer-reviewed research papers to her credit.

From the earliest days of her career, Dr. Perry has participated in professional societies to advance her expertise and continues active membership in organizations including the Society of Pediatric Research, the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research and the American Society for Pediatric Nephrology. She also has a long record of service and leadership with the American Society of Nephrology’s Kidney Stars program and the National Kidney Foundation among other groups.
