  • I am Professor and Chair of Pediatrics at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS) and Pediatrician-in-Chief of the Kravis Children’s Hospital. After recieving my MD degree from Columbia U. College of Physicians & Surgeons, I completed a pediatrics residency at Babies Hospital of Columbia U. and a Pediatric Nephrology Fellowship at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, where I stayed on in the physician-scientist track. In 1997, I was recruited to ISMMS as Chief of Pediatric Nephrology. There I built an internationally respected Division of Pediatric Nephrology and fellowship training program, which continues to attract trainees interested in clinical nephrology and basic research related to developmental nephrology. My commitment to training physician-scientists is evidenced by my past roles as Director of the ISMMS MD/PhD Training Program (MSTP) and Associate Dean for Graduate Education in Translational Research, and Director of the education arm of Sinai’s CTSA.

    I continue to run an active NIH-supported laboratory focused on defining the mechanisms leading to the acquisition, maintenance and regulation of ion transport in the renal collecting duct, the nephron segment responsible in the adult for the final regulation of salt and water homeostasis. I have served 2 terms as an Associate Editor of the American Journal of Physiology: Renal Physiology, and a member of multiple study sections and grant review groups of the NIH, American Heart Association, and the Polycystic Kidney Disease Foundation. I have held leadership positions in the American Society of Pediatric Nephrology (Council, then President), American Society of Nephrology (Board of Advisors), and International Society of Pediatric Nephrology (North American Regional Secretary and Councilor). My research accomplishments have been recognized by election to membership in the Society for Pediatric Research, the American Pediatric Society, and the Association of American Physicians.
