Stony Brook, NY, February 7, 2023 – Sandeep Mallipattu, MD, Professor of Medicine and Chief of the Division of Nephrology and Hypertension in the Renaissance School of Medicine at Stony Brook University, is among the newest members of the American Society for Clinical Investigation (ASCI) and will be officially inducted on April 21, 2023.
An international organization with more than 3,000 physician-scientist members from all medical specialties, the ASCI is dedicated to the advancement of research that extends understanding of diseases and improves treatment. Members are also committed to mentoring future generations of physician-scientists.
Dr. Mallipattu is only the 19th Stony Brook University faculty member elected to the ASCI, and the first since 2015.
“The ASCI is among the few organizations focused on the special role of physician-scientists in research, clinical care, and medical education, as well as leadership positions in academic medicine and the life sciences industry,” says Vincent Yang, MD, PhD, the Simons Chair of Medicine. “Sandeep’s election is testimony of his research prowess and achievements.”
Dr. Mallipattu has conducted groundbreaking research on the molecular mechanisms of chronic kidney disease and how these mechanisms catalyze the disease’s development and progression. He and colleagues have uncovered new details about kidney regulation and function, and advanced the science behind kidney regeneration.
The Society’s New Member Induction Ceremony will take place in Chicago as part of a meeting in collaboration with the Association of American Physicians (AAP) and the American Physician Scientists Association (APSA).
