Dr. Hsu has played a vital role as a consultant in all areas of clinical nephrology, including chronic dialysis, transplantation, general nephrology and general medicine. His interest in hypertension and calcium regulation led to a cohesive series of papers on abnormalities of calcium metabolism associated with the experimental hypertension. These papers provided major insights into the mechanism of vitamin D resistance in chronic renal failure and helped open up this area of investigation.
