"I try to provide care that is personal and compassionate as well as grounded in the best scientific evidence. It is so rewarding to help children and their families through their illnesses, no matter how minor or severe, so that they can have the best quality of life and the most normal childhood possible."

  • Joseph Flynn, MD, MS, is a Professor of Pediatrics in the University of Washington School of Medicine and Medical Director of Dialysis at Seattle Children's. He also holds the Dr. Robert O. Hickman Endowed Chair in Pediatric Nephrology. Dr. Flynn completed his pediatric nephrology training at St. Christophers Hospital for Children in Philadelphia, PA, and later received an MS in Clinical Research from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Bronx, NY.

    During his fellowship training, Dr. Flynn obtained experience in clinical research under the guidance of Bruce Kaiser, MD, and also worked in the laboratory of Dr. Bonita Falkner at the Medical College of Pennsylvania. He has developed specialized expertise in the treatment of childhood hypertension and has published extensively in this area, including several publications as the lead investigator of industry-sponsored clinical trials. More recently, he has established an interest in cardiovascular complications of chronic kidney disease in children and is a lead investigator in the NIH-sponsored CKiD cohort study, which focuses on cardiovascular disease in this population. Dr. Flynn has served as a research mentor to numerous pediatric nephrology trainees who now hold faculty positions at other academic institutions. Additionally, he has served on the Working Group of the National High Blood Pressure Education Program, is the immediate past-president of the American Society of Pediatric Nephrology, and is the co-chair of a new American Academy of Pediatrics committee charged with developing new guidelines for childhood hypertension. In addition to seeing patients at the Seattle Children's main campus, Dr. Flynn also travels to Montana to provide outreach services.

Clinical Interests

Hypertension, obesity and chronic kidney disease

Research Description

My research interests include the epidemiology and therapy of childhood hypertension, as well as cardiovascular complications of pediatric chronic kidney disease. I have been particularly involved with clinical trials of antihypertensive medications in children, and with the role of hypertension in the progression of chronic kidney disease.
