Dr. Hladunewich is interested in glomerular-based disease, and is conducting several clinical trials in the field. She is also interested in the renal physiology of normal and abnormal pregnancy.

She has developed specialty clinics in kidney disease, pregnancy and a glomerular-based disease to align with her research interests.
