Myles Wolf, MD, M.Med.Sc., professor of medicine and chief of the Division of Nephrology, was one of five faculty in the School of Medicine to be awarded a distinguished professorship.
It was the chance to try to help people, even at their sickest, that drew Dr. Steven Crowley to medicine 25 years ago.
Today the nephrologist still sees patients at the Durham VA Medical Center, but he spends much more time decoding how immune system cells contribute to hypertension and organ damage in his laboratory.
Still, the mission endures.
“The most important aspect of our work is to show solidarity with our patients. That is something we can always do, regardless of the stage of their illness,” says Crowley, whose research may lay groundwork for needed improved treatments.
The School of Medicine invites faculty to attend a town-hall style panel discussion on Physician-Scientist Honor Societies: Association of American Physicians (AAP) and The American Society for Clinical Investigation (ASCI).
Congratulations to Myles Wolf, MD, M.Med.Sc., chief of the Division of Nephrology, who was newly elected to the Council of the International Society of Nephrology.
Mary Klotman, MD, chair of the Department of Medicine, today announced that Myles Wolf, MD, MMSc, will assume the role of Chief of the Division of Nephrology, effective August 1, 2016.
