Dr. Canales’s overall research interest is to uncover novel, modifiable risk factors for kidney disease development and progression. Her current focus on sleep disorders and kidney disease developed during her fellowship training and continues to date. More specifically, she studies the effect of sleep apnea on renal function to determine if treatment of sleep apnea can slow progression of kidney disease and reduce adverse health outcomes related to kidney disease.
In addition to her sleep research, Dr. Canales also collaborates with the UF Urology department to study novel therapeutic strategies to treat and prevent kidney stone disease.
