Erika Allred, MD, FABP, is a board-certified pediatrician working on multiple projects with Rady Children’s Institute for Genomic Medicine. In addition to her clinical duties, Dr. Allred is assisting partner sites – other children’s hospitals and health systems in the US and around the world – with their outreach and education regarding the clinical use and validity of rapid Whole Genome Sequencing™ in critically ill pediatric patients. Her recent research includes the evaluation of pediatric transplant patient outcomes along with the genomics of kidney disease, specifically the genetic overlap of congenital anomalies of the kidneys and urinary tract (CAKUT) system and congenital heart disease (CHD). Previously, Dr. Allred has worked on devising novel targeted therapies for muscular dystrophies, a group of neuromuscular diseases that cause weakness and degeneration of the skeletal muscles. Dr. Allred is currently completing her pediatric nephrology fellowship through UC San Diego School of Medicine and UC San Diego Health where she also did her residency. She received her Doctor of Medicine degree from the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine, after graduating Summa Cum Laude from the University of Nevada, Reno.
