PhD scholarship top-up for Dr Marina Wainstein: Machine learning prediction of Acute Kidney Injury in hospitalised patients with COVID-19

Project Participants

Status: Ongoing

Around one third of patients hospitalised with COVID-19 have significant injury to their kidneys. Many will go on to require temporary dialysis and some will require lifelong kidney therapy. We currently have very limited understanding of how, why, and when the kidneys are injured during infection with COVID-19, and no proven strategies to prevent the condition. Identifying patients at risk of kidney injury early in their illness will not only help manage kidney treatment resources efficiently but ideally also help prevent the condition from worsening. This work will enable hospitals to operationalise predictive algorithms in a pandemic setting.
