• The overall theme of Dr. Mitchell’s research has been to study disorders that affect the kidney and to identify potential ways to improve the health and quality of life of individuals with kidney disease. She has a broad background as well as specific training and expertise in mitochondrial function and oxidative stress. Dr. Mitchell’s current research investigates the role of diet on immune cell mitochondria and oxidative stress in kidney stone disease using human dietary feeding studies, animal models, and cell culture models. In addition, she also studies the role of immune cells in interstitial cystitis/painful bladder syndrome. It is Dr. Mitchell’s hope that her research will provide relevant scientific information to help understand, prevent, and/or treat renal diseases and urological disorders.
