His funded research focuses on the basic and clinical expression of inherited or acquired disorders of calcium, phosphorus vitamin D, and FGF23 metabolism, mechansims of cardiovascular diseases in children with obesity or chronic kidney disease, the proteomics of inherited stone disease, inherited genetic diseases (cystinosis, oxalosis, kidney stones, atypical HUS, hypophosphatasia), and the rehabilitation of patients around the world with chronic kidney disease. Professor Langman has published more than 250 articles, reviews and chapters in his discipline.

The PI has the following major areas of hypothesis-driven research that are studied and supported: urinary proteomics in genetic kidney stone diseases; mechanisms of progression in chronic kidney diseases; rare genetic kidney diseases including atypical HUS, cystinosis, and Alport Syndrome.
