Opeyemi Olabisi, MD, PhD, is a rising star who was jointly recruited to Duke University in 2019 by the Department of Medicine and the Duke Molecular Physiology Institute – and he is in a hurry to make an impact in the lives of patients with kidney disease.
Congratulations to the Department of Medicine faculty who are being recognized by the School of Medicine for their leadership, service, mentoring, and professionalism.
Department of Medicine researchers Diego Bohórquez PhD and Opeyemi Olabisi MD, PhD, have been given two of the NIH Director’s “New Innovator,” awards, which are for high-risk/high-reward work being done by early-stage investigators. The award provides $1.5 million for a five-year project.
The Duke scholars are among just 93 “highly creative scientists” nationwide to receive the grants, which fund innovative and impactful research.
