Bio

Dr. Meredith Seamon received her medical education at Creighton University, where she also did her undergraduate studies. She then completed her pediatric residency training at the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics in Madison, Wisconsin, and fellowship training in Pediatric Nephrology at Boston Children’s Hospital. She is an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Utah in the Division of Nephrology and Hypertension.

Dr. Seamon’s clinical practice includes the care of patients with disorders of the kidney including chronic kidney disease, nephrotic syndrome, glomerulonephritis, tubular disorders, cystic kidney disease, kidney malformations, kidney stones, and hypertension. She also participates in the care of patients with end-stage renal disease on dialysis and following renal transplantation. She has a special interest in the management of patients with complex glomerular diseases as well as chronic kidney disease. Along with her colleagues in the Division of Nephrology and Hypertension, her regional practice includes patients from Utah, as well as from the surrounding states of Nevada, Colorado, Idaho, New Mexico and Montana.

Academic Bio

Dr. Meredith Seamon received her medical degree from Creighton University School of Medicine. She then completed her pediatric residency training at the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics in Madison, Wisconsin, and fellowship training in Pediatric Nephrology at Boston Children’s Hospital. She is an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Utah in the Division of Nephrology and Hypertension.

Dr. Seamon’s research interests have included examining a role for mRNA localization and local translation in podocytes in order to better understand the cellular mechanisms that maintain the structural integrity of this complex cell type. This is of interest as a greater knowledge of these cellular tools may facilitate directed therapies for ameliorating or preventing chronic kidney disease. Her abstract regarding these data received the Best Abstract Award at the 13th Annual International Conference on Dialysis: Advances in CKD 2011 sponsored by the Renal Research Institute in Miami, Florida.

Dr. Seamon is currently interested in recruiting pediatric and adolescent patients to participate in multicenter studies as part of the Midwestern Pediatric Nephrology Research Consortium. These studies aim to define the natural history of, and explore treatments for, pediatric kidney diseases.
