About Amir Kazory

Dr. Kazory’s main academic interest is the nephrologic aspects of heart failure, cardiorenal syndrome, fluid management in the critically-ill patients, disorders of water homeostasis, and the interactions between kidney and heart in various pathologic settings. Since the beginning of his career in France, he has been involved in clinical research projects including those related to extracorporeal and pharmacologic therapies that are currently offered to patients with cardiorenal syndrome and other disorders of water homeostasis. These projects have resulted in a variety of publications including articles and book chapters. He has been frequently invited to provide talks and lectures in national and international conferences in Europe, Canada, and the US.
