Prior to joining Houston Methodist in May 2017, he was a tenured professor at the University of Minnesota, the director of the Division of Renal Diseases and Hypertension and the medical director of the kidney transplant program.

After finishing his basic medical training in Detroit, he began his career as a clinical fellow in nephrology at the University Minnesota in 1995, then spent three years in the laboratory studying basic mechanisms of progression of kidney disease. He subsequently obtained a master’s degree in clinical research from the School of Public Health at the University of Minnesota.

At the University Minnesota, Dr. Ibrahim was heavily involved in education and served as the director of both the general nephrology and transplant nephrology fellowships.

Over the years he has received funding for his research from the National Institute of Health, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and other agencies. He has spent the last 15 years studying the outcomes of kidney donation. With his colleagues, they have been able to provide critical information that assists both kidney donors and health professionals in assessing the long-term risks of kidney donation. He is a reviewer for numerous general medical and specialty journals, and has served on many study sections for the National Institutes of Health, the CDC and also the National Kidney Foundation.
