Tammy Brady graduated magna cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in psychology and philosophy from Boston College. She earned her medical degree from Georgetown University School of Medicine in Washington, D.C, and completed her internship and residency in The Children’s Hospital at Montefiore in the Bronx, where she was a Chief Resident. In 2004, Dr. Brady came to Hopkins Children’s as a pediatric nephrology fellow. As part of her fellowship training, she received a master’s degree in clinical epidemiology from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.  As a faculty member she returned to the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and was awarded a Ph.D. in Clinical Investigation.  Her thesis research was entitled: “Pediatric Hypertension – Insights into Etiology, Diagnosis and Progression of Target Organ Damage”

Dr. Brady is currently an assistant professor of pediatrics within the Division of Pediatric Nephrology at Hopkins. Dr. Brady provides care for children with kidney problems of any type, from microscopic hematuria to kidney transplant recipients.

Dr. Brady’s clinical and research interests focus on pediatric hypertension; specifically, she is currently investigating the longitudinal effects of obesity and other clinical factors on the heart in hypertensive children.  Her research to date has led to the development of a multidisciplinary obesity hypertension clinic for children and adolescents.  Patients in this clinic benefit from an innovative multifaceted approach to this increasingly prevalent condition.  In addition to undergoing a full evaluation by Dr. Brady, a pediatric nephrologist, all children are evaluated by a licensed dietician, a physical therapist and a clinical psychologist.  They will also undergo a comprehensive cardiovascular risk assessment with imaging by a pediatric cardiologist.   Dr. Brady is the recipient of numerous research grants and awards.  She is currently funded by the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine Clinician Scientist Award.  Previous grant awards include an NIH/Johns Hopkins Institute for Clinical and Translational Research KL2 Clinical Research Scholar Award,  the American Society of Nephrology Norman Siegel Research Scholar Grant Award, the National Kidney Foundation of Maryland Professional Development Award and mini-grant awards, the American Heart Association Clinical Research Program Award, among others.  Her research accomplishments have garnered her peer recognition, resulting in several awards including the Best Clinical Abstract (awarded by American Society of Pediatric Nephrology) and a Clinical Research Award (awarded by NEMA Research).  She is co-Investigator of two NIH funded studies, the Chronic Kidney Disease in Childhood (CKiD) cohort study and the CKD: Hypertension Adherence in Teens (CHAT) study, and a collaborating investigator in the NIH funded NEPTUNE (NEPhrotic Syndrome STUdy NEtwork) study.  In addition, she is an active member of both the CKiD Cardiovascular subcommittee and the NEPTUNE Cardiovascular Outcomes committee.
