  • Sangeeta R. Hingorani, MD, MPH, is an attending physician at Seattle Children’s, an Assistant Member in the Division of Clinical Research at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center and an Associate Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Washington School of Medicine. She received her MD from Albert Einstein College of Medicine and an MPH from the University of Washington, where she also completed both a pediatric residency and a fellowship in pediatric nephrology.

    Dr. Hingorani’s clinical research program investigates renal injury after hematopoietic cell transplant.  She is also pursuing epidemiological studies to identify risk factors for the development of chronic kidney disease after transplant and is performing translational research in this area to better understand the pathophysiology and timing of this renal injury and to identify biomarkers of disease. Additionally, she is collaborating on a project with the FHCRC to identify gene polymorphisms associated with acute kidney injury after stem cell transplant. Dr. Hingorani also serves as Director of the ACGME Fellowship Program and a member of the Scientific Advisory Committee of the Pediatric CRC at the University, as well as being involved in various national committees.

      My sons, now in their 20s, were seen by Dr. Hingorani. She is the kindest, smartest and most compassionate pediatrician I saw. She observed us and knew about our international background and setup vaccinations so that my kids would be protected with travels in their future.

      Our daughter has been seeing Dr. Hingarani since birth, so 5 years now. She is wonderful with both us as parents and our daughter. She is very kind and down to earth. She was quick to ease our worries and has been great at communicating with our family doctor.

    • Andria Seattle, WA 07.16.13

      Our son has been under the care of one of the country's leading transplant programs, so our standards were very high when we met Dr. Hingorani and her team. We were not disappointed; she has a genuine interest in our son's care that goes well beyond nephrology. We are thrilled to have her leading our care team.
